Spanish is a hard a-level, like most! And, most a-level success is based on your passion. If you know you can do Spanish to a high standard, and find understanding concepts somewhat easy/comprehendable. Then it's competely fine for you to take it! Being really good at Spanish gets you so far in studies, so, perhaps have a look at the Spanish syllabus and see how you like it! It's a really good A-Level to take, and is super interesting if it's within your interests. A 6/7 is good for no revision, very good! And if you were to revise, it seems as though you could get a 8/9. Thus, you seem more than capable.

if you have an interest in the subject, then take it :yep: foreign language a levels have a reputation for being difficult but if you enjoy the subject you should be willing to work hard for it.

I think I got a 6 in my GCSE French mock, an 8 in my real GCSE and am now predicted A* at A level. You are definitely capable of doing it, you just need to go into it determined to work hard, learn the vocab and practice the grammar. You probably won't get A*s from the off, but few people do as it's a subject you build up gradually. If you love it, take it and go from there

If you love Spanish and you're prepared to work hard at it, then I would go for it!! I'm extremely biased as it is my favourite subject in the world and I want to study it at uni but I would recommend studying a language to anyone if they can. It's a very interesting course (much more so than GCSE). However, I would say there is an element of needing to have a good memory-especially for learning vocab and quotes from films and novels/plays-as well as not hating grammar. But 7s are definitely good enough to do A-Level I would say. There are only 4 of us in our class haha but one student got a 7 in their GCSE and is doing well. You just need to consider whether you would be dedicated and enthusiastic enough to spend lots and lots of time studying it. Good luck with your GCSE results
