I did my french controlled assessment (Exam board: OCR) and I'm guessing I got a B/C. Is it still possible to get A*?

It depends on how well you did. But yes, if you did the Higher GCSE French controlled assessment of any exam board, the highest possible score is A*. I did GCSE AQA German, and if your French course is anything like what I did, A* work tends to have a mixture of present, past and future tenses, a very wide range of vocab and sentence structures, and little to no mistakes (when they do occur they're little ones with complex grammar structures).

Have you fully completed the controlled assessment? If so, the controlled assessment is worth 60%, and the exam 40%, so a B in the controlled assessment would leave open the possibility of an A, but most likely not an A*.

Therefore a C in the controlled assessment would still be enough to get a B or low A overall if you performed well in the exam, but probably not an A*.

If you haven't completed all the controlled assessment, just do as best as you can in the rest and read the tips of the above post, and the A* is still possible.

Good luck whatever the case
