    Hello TSR

    Yesterday I received my AS results in which I was pleased with except for my C grade in AS French. I was predicted A's in both FN1 and FN2 WJEC exams and scored A in my speaking and reading/listening/writing exams. However, I found out I got a C and i just don't know what to do. French was a subject I was going to drop (I'm taking Biology, chemistry and Maths for A2 btw) and i feel like i don't want to retake it or carry on and retake FN1/FN2 and jeopardizing my other subjects. On the other hand, I put my heart and soul into preparing for those exams so I don't want my passion and determination for the subject because of a lousy C. Also, if any of you took WJEC AS french, has anyone else had the same problem or disappointment?

    lol I was expected to get an A overall and got like low B. Like what? In the mocks I scored 40/50 in the oral. Anyway I got 45 marks, and 60 was an A so yeah it was quite bad. I mean my oral was GREAT, I think it was anyway, I think I messed up in the second part of the exam, answering the questions and such, but nearly all my class got a B so :/. I was really expecting an A but I'm just worried about A2, no idea how I'll get my mark up to an A just because next year it's translation and such so yeah..

    I wouldn't bother. In my experience people who re-sit a year afetr dropping a subject do very badly. Concentrate on your A levels.

    sorry to hear that
    seems like you've answered it yourself though
    no real use in retaking it because you could be wasting valuable study time/effort/concentration and then get lower grades in your A2's
    so i wouldn't risk it
    all the best,
    Cheese
