On AQA, A-Level Spanish is 85% for an A* grade and 73% for an A grade. Where as, for A-Level French, also on AQA, it is as low as 69% for an A grade and 78% for an A* grade. This proves, A-Level Spanish is easier than A-Level French. :smile:

I don’t know if Spanish is easier than French but at my kids International school in France they all choose Spanish as the easy option ML

Thank you! Ive also heard that there are fewer applicants at Uni for French and it may be easier to get into a top Uni with an A or even a B.
Im looking at a combination degree and will be doing Economics or management along with French or Spanish if possible

Both and I want to get into a good Uni and will probably do both at Uni but right now I dont want to do 2 languages for A level as I want to do Maths and have been advised to do an essay based subject in case I want to do a combination degree

I think it’s very individual.

Just look online at the past paper questions!!! :biggrin: Do you know the novel text and film you'll do for A-Level Spanish yet? Because the essays are worth 10% each of your Paper 2 - Writing?! :s-smilie: lol :frown:

Heya!
It depends on which one you have done before and which one you find easier :h: if it helps, I recommend checking out some content and possibly some past papers to see what you will be doing, Study Mind should have them.

I hope this helps!
