    My school's pretty relaxed about languages... this rubs off on the students and no one takes french seriously. However, I LOVE the language and pushed the boundaries of my school's language department to allow me to do higher.

    I'm on the OCR board and I've been entered for Higher reading, Higher speaking and Higher writing... however, I've been denied any possibility for doing Higher listening.

    Does anyone know the highest mark I can achieve? A*-A-B? So far the few students who have previously demanded this set up have only really achieved a B, however, with extra tutoring I've been pushed up to standards of french that the Higher papers in GCSE don't require, so I'm wondering was my predecessors grades the max, or was it due to their lack of knowledge?

    Quotes would be EXCELLENT

    Merci et bien nuit,

    You been entered for higher speaking but not higher listening? Ludicrous. I'd have words with the French department at your school, to be honest. In regard to your ambitions to achieve A*/A/B, just check the weightings of the individual modules:

    e.g. if everything is 25%, and you were to achieve a high C in foundation listening, yet AAA across the others, chances are you're at least going to get a high B.

    Exam board?
    If It's AQA, then you're in luck as the listening is only 20% and the rest are 80%, so you can still get an A, I'm guessin.
