    Hi guys. My school has given me the option of doing GCSE Polish. I am from Poland and lived in England for 8 years now. I am fluent in both Polish and English in writing, speaking and reading. Has anyone here done the Polish GCSE or know someone who has done it? I would like to know what questions they normally ask you in the speaking exam and other stuff related to it? My exam board will possibly be OCR or AQA.

    People in school have been saying I'll get an A* no problem! Ha-ha

    I know two people in my school who have done Polish GCSE and got A grades overall.

    I'm taking one in my own language, Cantonese, for GCSE. Only half a GCSE since u can't read or write it... Way too hard!

    But you should be completely fine! Its pretty simple if you ask me. Just basic stuff like days, jobs, transport, etc.

    Go for it! You have nothing to loose, plus you get an extra GCSE in another language (if you've taken French, Spanish, German or something!) And looks really good on you!

    If you're fluent Polish, you'll have no problem! I haven't done it, but find out the exam board and Google past papers. They'll have them on their website.

    One thing to remember though, seriously suggest against taking Polish A Level, if you were born in Poland. A lot of uni's don't like people taking A Levels in their first language (or one you speak at home) and won't count it. Just something to think about, if you were considering it
