Ok so, I'm doing 10 other subjects as well as French. I will still get still Ebacc since I'm fluent in Spanish and will do the Spanish gcse exams.
My goals are all Grade 9s, and perhaps French will spread me too thin? I'm not struggling in French or anything, my teacher says she's confident I'll do ''pretty good''. However, I also want to ensure the grades on my other subjects and make sure I properly spend time on them.

I mean I could always learn French and do the exams once I'm an adult (if I wanted to), and on more 'calm' terms.

Keep in mind, I'm someone who stresses much more than the average person, and also have anxiety.

One of my teachers says that the more languages the better, because employers appreciate that. By the time you get to a job interview you don't even need to remember anything you learned; just remember things like ''my birthday is on the x''. Not only that, but it might make you stand out from other people who want that same job. By the way, I want to work either as a dentist or an statistician.

Is all that waffle worth it?

Keep french unless it’s becoming a major problem. I did 4 languages for gcse and they really complemented each other. Also, the threshold for a 9 isn’t in achievable - half my class of 15 got a grade 9.

You said you are someone who stresses much more than the average person, and also have anxiety and other subjects like maths and science are really topic heavy and it will be better to get higher grades in the core subjects . Learning French as well as 10 other subjects will put loads of pressure on you and you will end up procrastinating . Also people at harrya2002 's class may not have anxiety and don't feel pressurized as you may do so they did better . But again its up to you , i am someone who procrastinating and felt anxious a lot therefore i dropped spanish and felt much more time on other subjects and got 8's and 7's in mocks (this year) .

Do what feels right. Either way, it’s not going to have any real impact on your future. French is always something you can come back to.

What feels right tbh is sticking with French and doing meditation to help with anxiety... I won't drop it then, cheers x

it can effect your future if you don't focus on main subjects .
Just think about it for a day before making hasty decisions and then when you haven't got mixed feelings you would have made a choice

I know how u feel I do French and Spanish for GCSE and felt like dropping one of them for a long time, how I normally deal with having languages and more key subjects is having just one evening ,normally a Saturday, and revise vocab tenses and agreements then. However I would have to say that if u don't feel motivated enough to study French it's not worth the effort

French is ass juice
I wanted to drop it but I suggest taking it anyway . An extra GCSE no matter the grade (as long as you pass) is good

Hey so I thought about it thoroughly and I'll take the pain in the *ss and stick with French. I know 12 subjects isn't unachievable (Well, 11 technically, I won't revise for Spanish) and as long as i surpass my desire to procrastinate I'll be fine. There's tons of time too until my exams. Thank you
