    What's A-level French like? How difficult is it? I'm thinking of taking it for A-level (along with English literature, English language, History) Does it go well with these subjects? I got a B in GCSE French and am really worried that I wont be able to keep up, and do well at the end of the course? (I really struggle with grammar, spelling, accuracy- etc.) Thank you

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here. :dumbells:

    Hi ! I'm sorry about the 1st bit I cannot reply because Idk xD but I am a French native and I can give some tips to help you learn if you want + I can help you during the year if needed

    I'm sure you can keep your B up, download the duolingo app and do 5min of French everyday so you'll always have new vocabulary :yep:
    I recommend you to read a few pages of a French book every night before you go to sleep (4/5 pages is enough)so you can get used to sentences forms
    Also make each week a list of idioms/expressions you can use and try to remember them, teachers always love idioms :mmm:

    Its so good! Do it!Not too difficult imo, especially if you have a good supportive teacher!Looks like you have a very good combo there! Lots of my French AS pals had similar subjects to you (I was the anomalie lol)I dropped it after AS to concentrate on science but I have a few resources to help you on quizlet.com
    Register on there for a free account - you can make your own study sets and help you to learn vocab and stuff
    Also if you PM me I will give you my username so you can steal my old revision sets Are you doing AQA?Also: there is a "speller" exercise on quizlet that I feel would benefit you- registering is easy and free btw and there is an app ofc I think you'll enjoy it! I certainly did! Make sure you start to read in French e.g: lemonde.fr or lefigaro.fr
    All the best and feel free to fire questions/PM me
