    Hi there,
    I am currently studying my a-levels and recieved my AS results a few days ago. I was happy with all my results apart from German (edexcel). I recieved a b in speaking when i was 100% sure i'd get an a and i got a d in my written exam so overall c. Iam aware that A2 is even more difficult and i really need to work on my grammmar. Has anyone got any study tips to help me boost my grades? and actually understand grammar rather than just being confused?
    Thanks Zenisha

    With regards to grammar, in German you need to learn it all properly ASAP because German's grammar system is very complex and it will cause major hinderments in your writing (and reading) if you simply do not learn it properly.

    With regards to grammar, I think the book "Aktion Grammatik" is recommended for German A-Level students; I've read through it before and it's a very good book.

    These websites also have arguably some of the best grammar explanations:

    With essays that your teacher has marked (I'm not sure how edexcel grading works on essays, I do AQA) - what areas do you generally not do well on?
