We do AQA GCSE for languages, and we're getting on OK with the controlled assessments so I'm not looking to start a debate about the pros and cons (there are plenty of threads already about that!). I'm just wondering if there are any exam boards which still offer a course that's assessed through exams rather than controlled assessments, but includes the same topics as the AQA GCSE? The reason I'm asking is that I have a boy in my Y9 class who has Aspergers and although he's pretty good at languages and I would estimate would be capable of getting at least a C, probably a B, he's completely disorganised and scatty and really cannot cope with preparing and practising controlled assessments. I'm wondering if there are any alternatives for him, as it'd be a real shame for him to get a poor grade in the end just because the method of assessment really doesn't work for him. Can anyone make any suggestions?
