New qualifications based on this content will be first taught in Autumn 2018.
The consultation focuses on:
the requirement to apply 3 skills in combination (listening, reading and writing), responding to spoken and written sources on common subjects
the proposed title of the content for this qualification: ‘modern foreign languages AS and A level (alternative content for languages with smaller cohorts)’
