    I've been coasting through GCSE French as I have a natural aptitude for the language, but I don't think I'm dedicated/passionate enough to continue studying French at AS/A Level next year. I enjoy it, but I probably wouldn't consider taking it if it wasn't so highly regarded by employers/unis.
    THANKS

    AS and A Level French is a big jump from GCSE - I'm not sure about the new spec, but for the old one you had to have a fifteen minute fluent conversation with an out-of-school examiner and write a 500 word essay in French off the top of your head (with a given topic) amongst other things. I say take it if you really do enjoy it, but it does require a lot of effort - but then again, which A Levels don't?

    Best of luck
