You have to study GCSE German in order to do A Level in it

Very, very few places in the country will let you do German at A level without either GCSE or pre-existing GCSE standard knowledge.

If you make an effort to learn German to a good standard, and if there's a good reason why you couldn't do it at GCSE you might be able to ask your college to let you.

SORRY op but without gcse you have no chance whatsoever. The oral exam for example requires you too speak German for 15 minutes and also speak about random cards about a selection of topics and it is very hard. The grammar is very complex and the topics learn are studied in great depth. If you are PASSIONATE, you will need to either do 3 hours of private German 1-1 from now until next September of spend 2 months on a crash course in a German language school minimum. I wish you the best of luck as it is a fantastic subject.
