GCSE and A Level Spanish Exams

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by Duckering, Feb 1, 2011.

  1. Hi



    My name is Jane and l am a mum of 2 teenagers, l joined this site to
    gather some information from other students or from teachers on this
    site if l can!



    My daughter is 15, My son is 13, we live in Southern Spain and my
    children have been in the local school for about 7 years now and they
    speak and write perfect spanish, l would really love for them to take a
    GCSE and a A Level in Spanish if they can at their age now or later on,
    reason being is if we ever move back to the Uk l want them to have these
    under their belts if they can.



    My daughter would also like to learn Chinese as well, currently she is in her 2nd year of learning French from Spanish.



    Can anyone advise me or direct me in the right path.




    Many thanks

  3. I'm really not sure about this but... if you look at the exam board websites AQA, OCR and EDEXCEL you can get an idea of what is involved and buy some past papers. Your main problem is finding a centre where the exam can be sat. I am guessing here but probably an International school. If you are looking at this year ASAP as entries are being made now if not before.
     
  4. I tried to pm you - with a detailed response - but it wouldn't go for some reason. So I will try again later.

    It might be better to do the IGCSE, run by the Cambridge Board (CIE) among others. This would mean you wouldn't have to worry about doing the new Writing and Speaking Controlled assessments, which can be a real faff.
