I got an A* at GCSE and a U at AS spanish. if you're school was like mine they'd give you a false hope that you can do well at A level when really all they did is hammer us with mocks and rehearsing our speaking/writing. Worth saying that 97% of my class who went on to do spanish at college got an E or U

I live in Spain and am doing AS level Spanish.
I took my IGCSE a year early and got an A.
I find the classes a waste of time, eventhough I'm not even fluent in Spanish. The exam easy but it's a bit harder than GCSE. As long as you take your teacher's advice you'll do fine.

Hey, I do Spanish, Im from N.Ireland, so I don't already have some 'pre-knowledge' of it.
What I can tell you is that it's nothing like GCSE. It's still enjoyable and realyl interesting (if you find it interesting) but it is really difficult. I got a B at GCSE and I do find it hard, but I put that down to the fact I do absolutely no work for it. On all my mock exams in class I get around a C grade, which is good at the minute.
If you like it, I'd say go for it, it's a great asset for university and career options. No false hope intended, but you'll know yourself if you can handle it
