    So, I am due to start fast track A level chemistry and biology in September after completing my BTEC in Animal Management and Science in June, but I am considering doing A level Spanish too.
    So my question is, how many exams are there? Is it difficult? Is it doable in a year, in addition to the other two A level subjects?

    I got a grade A* in Spanish for my GCSE, so I don't know if that would contribute.

    Thanks!

    Is it the AS Level and the A2 in one year?

    Yep, that's what I want to do anyway. I just wanted to know from other people who have done this full A level, if it is doable in a year along with chemistry and biology? But also how many exams there are for AS and A2?

    If you do fast-track A-level Spanish, as well as Biology and Chemistry that means you're basically doing six subjects. Would you sign up for six AS-levels in one year?! Of course, if you do find it's too challenging you could just drop A2 spanish before February and only take the AS exams in May/June.

    Could depend on the exam board, but generally A-level modern foreign languages are as follows:-
    AS-level: one speaking exam (15 minutes), one exam paper, comprising a reading section, a listening section and a writing section
    A2-level: one speaking exam (15 minutes), one exam paper (composition thereof may be variable between boards)
