I don't think AS French fits into the option blocks my school have given me, and I am certain I want to do an AS. Given the fact that I will be simultaneously studying History, Politics, Economics and doing an EPQ, does it sound reasonable that I could teach myself a year of AS French in order to achieve an A grade?
Could I teach myself AS French? Watch

I would say no unless you are already semi fluent.I just did it this year and came out with a D after getting an A at Gcse.its a huge step up with a lot of complex grammar and vocabulary. To do this on top of your other 4 and achieve an A seems very improbable

I did it this year with a teacher and it was hard enough. I think in order to do it you would have to be sososo committed because it is a HUGE step up from GCSE. If you really want to do it, see about asking a teacher at school to tutor you, or a student who is going to do AS French who can photocopy their worksheets and stuff.

No, the way that they examine you is very specific so it's not even so much fluency that you require, it's technique and you ideally need a teacher for that.
I have just finished my A levels and ended up with a C in French, because even though I got As in both orals and a B in my AS paper, I got a U at A2 writing. A level French is really hard, definitely think a lot before taking it on by yourself!
