      ordinary then at least you will always have it in case you ever need it

      Depends on how many Ordinary subjects you already do, and the points you need for college. You could get a revise wise book or less stress more success book for french which will help or get grinds. Good Luck.

      Well, If you are finding Higher Level extremely difficult then move to Ordinary Level , You are only kidding yourself if you think you can do Higher Level , However if you are at least passing HL then continue until the mocks and then decide? :)

      Remember that the mocks are slightly harder, usually, than the real exam. They are also way earlier in the year. The question is not are you able for higher now; the question is, will you be able for higher by June?

      I'd say wait a bit, but if it's really not for you, then you can consider if you really need Higher level for what you plan on studying. But keep trying! Good luck! :3

      I just recently moved down to ordinary level as I was doing 7 honour subjects and French was stressing me out. It is a lot easier but don't kid yourself you will still have to work at it if you want a decent grade but if you cant see yourself improving in higher or if it is taking away all your time from your other subjects then go for it.
