I'm really wanting to get an A in GSCE French but I just want to clarify what I need to do to enter.
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.

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.
