    Okay title is a bit misleading but

    I overall got an A at GCSE French however in the listening I got a C, the reading I got a B and the speaking and writing (coursework) I got a*s... overall I got an A.

    but the thing is with GCSE coursework u can basically memorise the whole essay/oral and just say it out loud it's not really testing ur knowledge lol which is why I got a*s...
    I stupidly decided to take it for alevel... currently doing my AS levels and I've realised I'm screwed I got 7/20 in a listening and 11/20 in a reading the writing is done in time conditions so I can't memorise the essay( only some phrases ) and the speaking is not something u can memorise either they could ask me anything!!!
    SO.... do u guys have any suggestions ??
    Id actually love this subject if my teachers didn't hate me so much i enjoy speaking it for fun ...

    any advice? anyone been in a similar situation HELP

    Just don't do french. Trust me.
    I take french and people with A*s dropped out because it's so hard so don't put that strain on yourself.

    Drop it! We do igcse French in our school (spontaneous) which is so lucky because we can kinda speak French obviously not fluently, but it means until the end we get lowish grades. Atm (mock) I got a B but hopefully will get an A*. Good luck

    Dont bother, you need a natural talent for learning the language with ease. GCSEs aren't a good indication of whether or not you'll be good at A levels.
