    At the moment, I'm doing 5 AS's- four of them are in my sig, and French.

    In my mock, I got a low B but I was really hoping for an A. Anyway, now I'm wondering if I should drop it. I don't need 5 subjects anyway and I think I'd rather 4 As than 4As and a B.

    When I told my French teacher, they said something about leaving off the cash-in code and the grade wouldn't register but that seemed really suspicious to me. They can hide an exam grade? Even when applying to uni etc.?

    So anyway, should I drop French and concentrate on getting good As in the other 4? I know I wouldn't carry it to A2 anyway... Or do I investigate this code thing?

    Any advice?

    Do you like it?
    If you don't, then drop it.
    If you do, then continue. Even if you do get a B, that's still a really good grade!

    EDIT: I'm only saying this because I believe a language can be far too much hard work if you're not into it. However, the AS exams are pretty okay, I got As in French and German last year and my German is absolutely terrible!

    Depends. Seem like you're pretty sure you want to drop it and as you say you don't need five.
    (the whole hiding a grade thing sounds suspicious to me too though =S)

    However if you do like french and want to have a better grasp of the language than keep it on and, like the poster above said, a B is still a great grade to get.
