    As some of you may know, these are the GCSE's I would love to get an A in (Maybe not french but oh well).
    In my english Coursework, looking at the marks which I have got, I have probably got low A or high B.
    The question is can i still get an A if i got a Strong A in my exams?

    French:
    I got a Strong B in writing and a Low B/High C in speaking, Could i get an A with an A* in Reading and an A in listening?

    Thanks

    With English I got B in my coursework - got B in the exam (B overall) but I was told a high A would push me up. If you are A/B then a high A/A* would be your goal for an A.
    I did German (same marking system though), in my coursework I got a solid B and was told I had no chance of getting an A as my coursework wasn't strong enough. I worked my butt off, aced the exams and shocked my teacher with an A!

    You can get an A in both, good luck and make sure you are prepared - past papers are the best test for both of these.

    GCSE French papers are a lot easier than the controlled assessments (especially if you're a nervous person like I am when it comes to those kind of assessments) and I didn't think I'd done that well when I came out of the exams, but honestly it's not hard. You'll be alright, I think if you got As then you'd probably be fine too.
