Hi, I'm currently in year 10, I was curious as to what sort of grades I would need to achieve in Reading and Listening in order to get an A*? Here are my current controlled assessment levels:
Writing: 28/30 (A*) + 29/30 (A*+)
Speaking: 23/30 (B+) + 25/30 (A)

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Wow your ca grades are good!
It's hard to tell exactly what grades you will need but just try your best, don't rely on getting a particular mark and slack a bit because you might end up not reaching the mark in the end.

I'd say aim for an A but just to be safe an A*

Controlled assessment counts for 60% and Reading and Listening are only 40% so I'm sure you will be able to get an A* anyway

I'd try and get A* in both, although you could still get an A* overall with just As. I have full marks in both my CAs and have just sat my exams, which I feel went so terribly. I'm still nervous to get my grade back as I feel I did badly and want an A*, so knowing I have the highest I can in 60% makes me feel a bit more confident.

If you really want an A*, I would recommend doing your first speaking again to get an A, you will thank yourself later. I believe you are allowed to re do the assessments if you change one question? If you're in year 10, there's no rush, they don't need to be sent off until may next year

Thank you! And don't worry too much I'm sure you did great! Yeah I'll be retaking my speaking at least once to get an A overall.

Yes I did the AQA French Listening and Reading this year

I'm happy with my controlled assessment marks, but I found the Listening quite hard this year. Just hoping that I can still get an A*!

Good luck with your French GCSE!
