In order that candidates of all abilities may demonstrate their achievement, three levels of examination are offered within each skill.

After the Course

If you enjoyed learning the language at this level, you can go on to study AS and A Level Spanish.

Subject Combinations

You can also study this course alongside AS Spanish. This means that you will receive five hours of GCSE and five hours of AS Spanish weekly. This will enable you to be exposed to many hours of the language. This option is intensive and the pace is fast, therefore you will have to learn how to take a greater responsibility for your own learning as well.
