    If you're less comfortable with German, talk to your school asap to see what options they have available to you, in terms of dropping the subject and taking French. I wouldn't worry about how you compare to others, it's personal achievement that truly matters! Take the subject you feel you'll do the best in. Or, if you're planning on taking one of the languages further, to A-Level, then take that language. Unis and sixth-form colleges don't really care about what subjects you do, simply what you get in them, at GCSE.

    Try emailing your school. Failing that, ask your form teacher or head of year on the first day of term. It also dependson timetabling, althoguh I'm sure they'll be able to do something, provided there are spaces for French.
