    A 'B' grade is fab!

    I'm not really good with learning by rhyming things and making codes and stuff to help me revise..

    but I found this quiz on irregular past participles really useful:

    Thanks for that

    Coudre and acquerir were surprisingly hard ;(
    I'm a bit late to the thread I know but I really wanted to ask how you found french as level. I'm planning on doing it next year and would like to know what you think, how much of a step up is it from gcse (I'm hoping for a secure a*) and is there any advice you have for making the best start to the course?
    Thank you!

    I think regardless of what you get a GCSE the jump is huge. It's a very difficult step up, as you have to learn all the grammar and how to formulate arguments, conversations etc. however don't let me put you off. I love French, and when you're past the first couple of months you start to see results. I would advise you to stick at it if you do take it as many drop in the first few weeks. AS is harder than A2, as you learn pretty much everything in the first year so after that it just improves! If you're hoping for an A* I would definitely say go for it as it's my most rewarding A level. Good luck and I hope that helps 😊

    I got an A* at GCSE and it's definitely a massive step to A level. I'd say don't let yourself forget much French over the summer as I did this and on my first lesson back I could hardly remember some really easy stuff. Also if your sixth form/college has a French assistant, make sure you see them when you have to. I didn't do this in year 12 because our assistant was awful but this year he's been fab and I've really improved my oral skills.
    But overall it's a great A level, I'd definitely recommend it. Bonne chance!
