Consultation description

We’d like your views on AS and A level subject content covering the following languages: Arabic, Bengali, Gujarati, Greek, modern Hebrew, Japanese, Panjabi, Persian, Portuguese, Polish, Turkish and Urdu.

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)’

  • any disproportionate impact, positive or negative, on specific students, in particular those with ‘relevant protected characteristics’
