Frequently Asked Questions
  • Which syllabus/examination boards do you teach?

 

Our Italian A Level course is based on the Pearson Edexcel A Level syllabus.

 

The Italian A Level papers cover all four key language skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

 

  • Where can I take my Italian A Level exams?

 

There is a network of partner centres around the UK where you can sit your exams if you do not already have this option at your school or college.  Students enter directly with their chosen centres.

 

Examination entries are generally made by the first week of February for the summer exam series in the same year.
 

  • What are the course start dates for A Level Italian?

 

The next available course start date is 9th September 2024.

  • When do Italian A Level exams take place?

 

Exam dates vary each year, but generally the Italian A Level speaking tests are conducted in April/May and the two written papers are taken in early to mid-June.  You will need to enter by February to take your exams in the same year.  Occasionally, late entries are possible; please contact us to enquire about availability.

  • Do you offer Italian A Level courses for native speakers?

 

There is a specialised programme for native speakers to complete their Italian A Level in one academic year.  

  • What are the benefits of choosing an A Level in Italian?

The A Level is the most prestigious academic qualification for school leavers in the UK.  Students usually take this qualification at the end of year 12 (age 18).

 

A Levels, or their equivalent, are a requirement for entry to British universities.  They are graded from A* (highest) though to E (lowest).  Generally, only around 19% of students achieve the top grade.

The number of students opting for A Levels in Modern Languages is declining year-on-year.  Taking a modern language enables a student to follow their own academic interests and showcase a range of transferable study skills.  It also sets a student apart from their peers and opens up a world of career possibilities.

Taking an Italian A Level course online is a cost-effective and fast-track alternative to studying for the qualification at school or college.

Examination fees are set by the relevant awarding body and our students receive a 10% discount at our partner centres.  You can also opt to take your exams at your own school or college.

  • What are the entry requirements to enrol?

As well as students in the UK, we work with international students and independent learners, so it's not a problem if you don't already have British qualifications.

We welcome students who have already learned Italian to GCSE level or higher (A2 - B1 - B2+, CEFR).  If necessary, we can arrange an initial assessment to establish your current level.

  • Why take Italian A Level online?

An online A Level in Italian offers you access to fast-track online courses, including full tutor support, live lectures and one-to-one tuition to ensure you reach your potential.

Through our online academy, you can access the very best learning experience with all the resources and tuition that would normally be provided in the classroom, and learn at your own pace with no limitations.

  • Can I switch to Italian A Level mid-year?

 

Switching courses mid-year can be as daunting as starting from scratch, so our Italian A Level online course is designed to be as forgiving as possible.

You can join the Italian A Level course to supplement your college studies, or take the whole qualification with us directly. An accelerated programme is available for those looking to switch mid-year, with full tutor support to make the process seamless and easy.

  • How can I register my interest?

A limited number of places is available to join our courses each year.  Please contact us to arrange an initial consultation.
