how do i get a grade 7/8/9 in GCSE AQA german if i dont enjoy the subject at all? watch

    • Thread Starter

    i would have loved to do spanish but they wouldnt let me change dor some reason ( is this corruption, letting the minority/poor people do the worser/harder subjects?) so now i am stuck with german. i am OK with german, it is just that i love the language of Spanish and more people speak spanish than german. my target grades are 6-8 and i am in year 10. what can i do now for a grade 7/8/9 for my GCSES. + is it true that to get into Oxbridge, you need all A* & A's on your GCSES?

    Yes A*/A’s (A-level) are needed but only 3 which usually academics(for example math/English/science) I advice you check out the courses and it’ll tell you exactly what you need so theoretically it’s not mandatory to get A* in your GCSE’s as they focus more on your A-level grades however your GCSE’s are taken into account so higher the better!
    For revising and getting high grades in languages you should focus on tenses as they get the marks along with knowing key vocabulary(like adjectives and verbs)
