GCSE ASSESSMENT

Note: An initial assessment may be required to determine the current level of study. The initial assessment may be able to predict an exam entry year but this will also depend on the efforts and work of individual students. If a student does not have sufficient background knowledge in Arabic or does not reach an above average assessment score this may mean that a proposed course duration of 3 years rather than the normal 2 years. Ongoing testing/assessment available at various intervals during the course.

We occasionally post Arabic resources on our blog and update our resource section but this will always be limited in nature compared to the student access to past papers etc. Check back on a regular basis to see the latest posts on the blog for more Arabic resources and information.
