Exam Boards

Because a lot of people study French, all the major exam boards offer it at all levels. You will need to know which board you are using to find out exactly what you need to learn. Specifications change frequently so make sure you check that your specification is valid for the year in which you intend to sit the exam.

You can view the specification you are studying here:

IGCSE

Note that the International GCSE is not widely approved for use in UK state schools. Most exam boards offer an equivalent specification known as a Level 1/2 Certificate. (These generally require controlled assessment and so are not suitable for private candidates not studying the subject at school.)
