    Can people on here tell me whether they would recommend me doing a level french? Im really interested in it and have always loved it since GCSE. I'm just wondering how much if your time it took up? And if it was a really difficult a level

    It depends on how much time you want to spend on it; the more you spend, the better your grade (like any other A Level). But I have to say that studying French is a different experience to any other subject which is rewarding in itself. Also, it's definitely a useful prospect to know a different language.

    Aah no, I'm hoping to do English at Oxford!

    Although I have read quite a few French books... definitely read Un Sac de Billes, L'etranger and Une tempete (Cesaire).

    Good luck!

    Oooh! This is so exciting, do you know which college you're going to apply to yet? And yes I've read a bit, i'm currently reading Camu's La Peste, but to be honest I am so busy! I'm applying for italian ab initio so trying to teach myself a bit. Dreading starting my personal statement...no idea where to begin. Good luck!

    Have a look at this - AP exams are the American equivalent of A-levels, and those lucky people have one in French Literature! (There's a really good reading list, and links to dictionaries of French literary terms, etc).

    Aah I have family in America... they're always going on about AP exams so I thought I'd take a look... if you dig around a bit, I think there's a Italian Language & Culture AP, which could be useful?

    I do English Lit, History, French and Classics. Totally regret Classics - dropping it! X

    I know right! Not sure yet, I liked Magdalene and Christs though, they were really lovely ooh sounds good! I have a fair amount of reading to do, I've been reading a more modern book but really want to read some Emile Zola! Ooh wow! I would love to do ab initio Italian too but I wouldn't be able to bear not studying French and german!

    So.... How did you do? I got 88 in the written and 40 in the oral so I'm FOUR FECKIN UMS OFF AN A FFS getting a remark though, need an A for the unis I'm looking at :/ typical, one subject I need an A most in!!!


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Got 98/140 in the written paper and 55/60 in the oral so 153/200 total but then got the paper remarked and it took my score up to 158/200 ie. 2 marks of an A
    I'm bloody pissed off to be honest because i just needed 1 FECKIN raw mark to go up to an A and one of my universities requires an A in French so now i have to re take. Bugger.
