Panjabi (2680)

We're pleased to announce our plans to continue offering A-level Panjabi, subject to agreeing appropriate content requirements with the Department for Education (DfE).

The last exams for students taking the current AS and A-levels will be June 2019, with a final re-sit opportunity in June 2020.

Subject to agreeing appropriate content with the DfE and Ofqual, our reformed A-level Panjabi will be ready for first teaching in September 2018 with first awarding in 2020.

Find out more about these changes and which qualifications we are planning to offer in the future. You can also contact the customer support team on the details shown below.

A-level Panjabi helps students develop confident, effective reading and writing skills in Panjabi and an understanding of the culture of countries and communities where Panjabi is spoken. It develops an awareness and understanding of the contemporary society, cultural background and heritage of the region where the language is spoken.

This two-unit specification requires students to develop their ability to read and write in Panjabi with accurate grammar for a range of purposes and to understand written Panjabi in a variety of contexts and genres.

This course is particularly suitable for students who have studied GCSE Panjabi and who wish to study Panjabi at a higher level.
