Is Polish a-level hard??

Hi, I was wondering, if there's anyone who's done it and can tell me if it's worth doing. I'm Polish, and I did my Polish GCSE last year and i found it really easy. I'm starting my AS next year. I'm taking 5 subject, so i'm wondering if it's worth having Polish as well. Thank you! :)

French is my mother tongue but I managed to whizz through it quite easily because i was able to speak/listen/read quite well compared to those in my french class. The only thing which i found challenging was the writing because I dont read as much french at home but I still got an A at AS.

Its great to take up a launguage for extra ucas points, stand out the crowd  and have a firm ground of your own launguage but bear in mind that juggling 5 alevels the whole way through and getting the best grades as you can could be challenging....If you found GCSES really hard to juggle then A-levels would be very difficult to manage, so there is no point taking up the extra Alevel anyways .

If you're already fluent in polish, I'd say go for it! :) remember that if it get too much, you can always drop it again, and if you can manage it'll look amazing, as it's not a very common subject to take. I'd say it's better to give it a go than to wonder forever! :)

language a level is very hard - it's almost the equivilant of native/fluent speaker

5 a levels is already enough - you may find your self under a lot of pressure with 6 and your other subjects will suffer
