I'm planning to do A-level Spanish. However I am slightly concerned as a few people have told me that due to the high number of native speakers taking the subject, it's almost impossible for someone who's taking it as a 2nd language to get a good grade. Is this true?

Do native speakers really bring A-level language grade boundaries up by that much? watch

I see it more noticeable in the less taught ones, like dutch, portuguese, russian etc

wouldn't say it's impossible. I can't comment on the grade boundaries, but the key to A level Spanish is perseverance and having fun. I did my Spanish A level in year 10, along with a native speaker, and we ended up with the same grade. You'll be fine, honestly.
