    im currently in year 11 and am very close to dropping French GCSE as i am finding it very hard and would like to focus on getting higher in other subjects. I am doing double science, and predicted to pass all my GCSES, im aiming for As/Bs and maybe the odd A*. Is a language GCSE really that important to get into uni etc? Im looking to take 3 A levels and then go on to university. I am most likely to drop French so is 8 GCSES okay?

    Honestly once you do A levels your GCSEs won't be as important as you think they are so don't worry. I'm in year 12 and the main thing you need is to pass Maths & English Language and to get good grades in the subjects you want to do at A-level. So obviously if you don't want to do French A level then its not that bad if you drop it. I did French gcse and omg I hated it, yes it looks good for university but its not a major thing. Hope this helps.

    I'd say stick with it but don't revise it. You can still manage a C without working hard.

    I only did 8 GCSEs (as did everyone at my school) and it has never been a problem.
