Spanish GCSE Level 1/2 at Oakwood Park Grammar School

Course description

GCSE Spanish is a two-year course, examined at the end of the second year (normally Year 11). The Examining Board is EDEXCEL. The four skills of Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing are assessed in the exam; each skill is worth 25% of the overall grade. At OPGS, the second Modern Foreign Language GCSE is offered at the end of a one-year introductory course. A very high level of commitment is required, as we want the students to succeed at GCSE after only three years of study.
