    Hello, how many words is it to get an A approximately?
    See, I did actually do my courseworks and well,I know I got an A in my speaking, but my teacher didn't sign it off[apparently you have to sign something?] and didn't sign anyone else's, and not many people even did it oddly enough, so it was pointless.
    Now, however, we have a new teacher, and although he's good, he's trying to rush things and do all the courseworks now, but I really want an A grade and he's barely taught us, he asked what we learnt from the last two years, and we only just realised we've barely learnt anything, honestly the teacher sees a C grade from one or two people as the best potential in my class which is a little bit sad.
    I really want to see what my grade my work is, but I don't know nor do I know how many words. I have to write it on Wednesday and I'm struggling to memorise it, whilst juggling with other courseworks and homeworks and tests.


    You'll have to tell us a bit more about your assignment/exam board but I always used to write to the limit and I ended up being successful with that. I know how you feel with the memorization :/ Do you have any German family friends who you can show it to? Otherwise there are native speakers on these forums who will proofread your work if you ask them nicely (or they see this thread and want to haha).

    DO make sure it's as accurate as possible by asking someone to proofread, though.

    To do well in German coursework at GCSE, you need to know the basics of the language but a lot is down to whoever proofreads and shows you where corrections are necessary. Just include all the A/A* elements like expressions, high level vocab and once you show it to someone, they can tell you what needs improving in terms of accuracy.

    As for words, write til the maximum. No further
