    Hi there,

    I'm really wanting to get an A in GSCE French but I just want to clarify what I need to do to enter. :confused:
    How many Higher papers do I need to take to get an A?
    I thought the maximum grades were for:
    4F = C
    3F + 1H = B
    2F + 2H = A
    1 F + 3H = A
    4H = A*

    Really need a quick response please.
    Much apreciated.
    Merci!

    Well I don't know about your exam boards and things like that but for my GCSE German exam (which was the same layout as my French one) I took 2 Foundation papers in Listening and Reading and 2 Higher papers in Writing and Speaking and came out with an A overall although that was only because I got very high C's in Foundation, and very high A*'s in Higher..
    My German teacher didn't think it was possible to get an A if you did it my way - but I proved him wrong!
    Do what you feel comfortable with - if you're happy doing Higher in all of them then go for it! But if, like I was, you're getting D's or something for just one or two parts of the exam, then you might as well split and do half Foundation and half Higher

    I think you need to take at least 2 higher papers. And get a good C in any foundation papers you do.
