This is our current GCSE specification.
For our new specification see:
GCSE French helps students develop their language skills in a variety of contexts and a broad understanding of the culture of countries and communities where French is spoken. It encourages enjoyment of language learning and the recognition that language skills enable students to take their place in a multi-lingual global society.
This four-unit specification requires students to develop their ability to write and speak in French and to understand French when it is written down or spoken. This course has 60 per cent controlled assessment. It is particularly suitable for students who have studied FCSE French and wish to study at a higher level.
This qualification counts towards the English Baccalaureate.
