What are the A-level papers like for french? Is there reading, listening, speaking and writing? If so what type of questions do you get asked? Is it a hard subject to do at A-level compared to french AQA GCSE? Thank you x

You have three papers.

Paper 1 Listening, Reading, French to English Translation - 2 hours 30 minutes (50%)
Paper 2 Writing (essay on the book and film you study) and English to French Translation - 2 Hours (20%)
Paper 3 Speaking - Usually half an hour including preparation time - 12 minutes discussing your IRP research and 2 speaking cards (30%)

That sounds less frightening than I thought it would. Thank you for taking the time to inform me on the papers. x

Idk if this is a rumour, but in the listening and reading paper do you have to listen to a passage and then write a summary about it (in French) in your own words?

Yeah those are summaries, a new "skill" to the a level language syllabus. They're in reading and listening as well.
