    Hey there
    I'm picking a-levels at the moment and I currently do french and german at GCSE. I would like to carry both on to a-level but I don't know if this would be too difficult. I need at least a B in both to be able to take them for a-level. French I am more solid with and am currently A/A* borderline. German I am B/A borderline but I did two weeks work experience in Germany and feel more comfortable speaking it. I definitely want to do french as I am better at it but iu would love to take both. Can someone give me their opinions?
    Thanks in advance xxx

    The gap between GCSE and A level is quite big so you have to be prepared to put a lot of work in - especially for German. I do German and Spanish A2, already done French A level (This is my 2nd time at 6th form long story - health problems).

    As long as you are prepared to work hard then there shouldn't be a problem. I took Spanish from scratch for AS and I was one mark off an A - so if I can do it, you can definitely cope with French and German with your grades so far

    In regards to German, I second this. The gap with French is not as noticeable.

    I swear Germans created extra grammar specifically for A level
