    I'm in my final semester of my final year at uni doing German and I'm worried that I have not studied enough during the course of the year. My German grammar is still not great and I feel like my sentences when writing an essay in German are very basic. I find translation quite difficult, especially into English, as the texts are very complex. I'm averaging at a high 2:2 and I really want to bump it up to a 2:1.

    Is there anyone who has done a German degree or anyone doing language degree right now who has any advice? I'd really appreciate it!

    It all depends on what assessments you have left, if you have any left that play into your strengths then do your best to perform well.

    As for translation German >>> English that is something that is easy to improve on, break down texts into smaller sections and it should be much easier. The key to translating from German into English is to understand the German text first, if you understand the text it should be easy.
