    Or just a good grade in it. I'm now in year 12 and had my first lesson today. I really enjoy the subject and love the language, culture and media. I got an A* at GCSE but unfortunately my new teacher isn't great. I've seen and heard a lot of scare stories on how It is impossible to get an A* in it. is this really true? Does anyone know how to get a good grade at it and can give any tips? My French accent and pronunciation is terrible so any tips on that would be great too!

    I got an A*, 388 ums marks overall! If you want it, you can get it as long as you are prepared to put a lot of work in and do extra outside of lessons.

    Nope it's impossible. Nobody has ever managed to get an A* in A Level French before...

    Check this reply I typed up to someone who wants to self-study French. Stick to that (amongst other things, such as your classwork) and you should be good.

    Try and treat the language and the subject as two different things. Try and improve your ability in the language and not the subject. Improving your ability in your language makes doing the subject a lot easier. That probably doesn't make a lot of sense but just trust me on this one.
