I'm at the end of year 10, and would really like to take an italian a-level at college after i finish secondary school. However despite being quite competent in GCSE French (currently getting A*'s in speaking and writing assesments),i don't have a GCSE in italian and have never studied it as a topic. Although, I'm really keen, and have been attempting some private study of the language. The college does an afterschool course in Italian 'Level 1' (not a-level/GCSE, but would give me good prep and basic knowledge of the language) for £220 (25 weeks) however this is quite expensive. Is there anyway I could still enroll in an italian a-level, or atleast any advice on learning the language myself? The entry requirements are as follows:
"Five GCSEs at grade C or above in appropriate subjects.
Successful A Level students would normally have achieved a grade A or B in a number of relevant GCSE subjects, including Italian."
Is it possible to take A-level Italian as a beginner? Watch

I know someone who did an AS in Italian as a beginner, but the full A level I think would be too difficult. But if you got yourself to GCSE standard over the next year (which is entirely possible), then yes I think you could do it. Look online for Italian learning resources.
You might also be interested in this course. It's an Italian university courses, I believe you can do it entirely online and it is free. You might have missed the application deadline for this year (ask to see if you can make a late application), otherwise you can do it next year. http://www.du.se/en/Study-at-DU/Cour...us/?kod=IT1020
