    :confused: Does anyone do A level french? Can you please explain to me what A2 is like compared to AS and what the workload/cw is like. I think I want to drop it but I am not sure yet.
    Thanks

    Yeah, I do. Personally I didn't think the gap between AS and A2 was as bad as the gap between GCSE and AS because you've already covered pretty much all the grammar you need and got used to the increased speed of the listening tapes, the more sophisticated nature of the topics etc. The workload for A2 is pretty much the same as for AS. What the coursework is like depends on your exam board. I'm with Edexcel and we have to do 2 pieces, one 450-500 words and one 950-1000 words. They can be on anything you like that's rooted in French culture/society, but the 2 pieces have to be on different topics and they have to be different from both your AS and A2 oral topics.

    No no no!! im also doin a level french (and german by the way) but doing AQA....its so much harder than AS i swear..you do 2 pieces of coursework that are 700 word each but because you've got to answer the question in detail they end up being double the length....and basically you just have to really want to do any subject at A level cos its a lot of work...lots of grammar and vocab etc and you need to be motivated or you're screwed basically...:trytofly:

    but saying that.. i likeit (kinda) and going to do it at uni so...take from that what you will....

    Yup, I'm with AQA too and have to agree that the increase in difficulty from AS to A2 is at least as big (if not bigger) than the increase from GCSE to AS.

    I'd say my work load is roughly the same, perhaps a little more intense. However, I think if you're motivated and you enjoy the subject it shouldn't be too much of a problem.
