    Is the step-up huge grammar wise and is studying literature difficult, or is it not too bad? (I'm doing AQA, if that makes a difference).

    our teacher said we have done about 66% if the grammar already (although that has passed me by mostly)...we have to do literature next year which takes alot of time

    i didn't do aqa, but the step up with edexcel wasn't too bad; we had 9 months without any exams just to prepare. you get loads and loads of practice at all aspects so i wouldn't be too worried

    Yeah, well I'm doing all of my subjects to A2 anyway, I just wanted to reassure myself really. I suppose if it gets too much, I can always choose to drop it.

    are you not doing the coursework option for german at A2 then? it is harder, especially the oral exam i think, but if you've kept on top of the grammar at AS you shouldn't have a problem at A2- yu get to do all sorts of fun things with subjunctives next year (well we did) and the passive tense just becomes second nature

    oh and as for literature, well i didn't really do any as part of the syllabus, i did it in preparation for interviews and stuff, but if you know what books yu're going to be doing etc, have a go reading them in the holidays if you have time. it'll pay off later in the year when you might want to be concentrating on coursework for other subjects. i personally found that german coursework took up most of my christmas cos i was so lazy with it

    i myself am german and did sit the As and A2 exams. i don't think there is a huge step up at all... i was surprised how easy it was as well...
    The unit 6 paper gives u a choice of 9!!!! topics that u can choose from to write an essay about.
    if ur looking good for your As then A2 shouldn't be too hard
