    If you really wanna do it, do it i guess but languages are a bit tricky to self teach. For example I'm french but i still find french hard

    I'm planning on asking my current school to just fit me in. I'm not able to take 4 subjects at A2. My school doesn't allow it, so I'm prepared to self teach it

    What exam board is it? With wjec i think 40% of ur grade is ur oral, and u need to write the answers to the questions.. Im asking if ur teachers will help u by marking ur answers so that when u go into the oral exam ur answers are right??

    You can do it alone (I did both AS & A2 at the same time by myself), but if you think you will be struggling with it then it would be best to get a tutor (or a teacher that could help you, that is if you're still at sixth form).

    I'm doing the AQA. Oh right ok, I'm not really sure then. I should ask my school soon then if I'm really going to do this

    Wow you did both! Was that with AQA, and did you take the exam at your 6th form?

    If you think you can then go for it, but I would strongly suggest being able to find a teacher or at the very least a student who has knowledge of the Spanish A Level [specification] and ask them for tips.

    No I think it was on OCR (I wasn't really told or given any materials whatsoever). I took my exam at my sixth form. If it's AQA there are many onlines resources available for you (such as GetRevising and loads of YouTube tutorial).

    Related question: I have never done spanish before (except in yr7 but that doesnt really count). I am going to learn spanish in my gap year. is it worth trying to get a GCSE or AS out of it too or is that too much even for a gap year?
