    Hello I'm new in this website so sorry if I am in the wrong forum.

    I want just to know how we can do a gcse privately ,because I'm from France and as I want to continue my study in london ,I started Gcse (in one years) which is obligatory for go to A level but when I asked to my college if I can do french gcse this year (with my other 5 gcse's) they said that they don't teach french and advised me to do french Gcse as a private candidate, so I went to a exam center and they asked me a CODE ?!!

    So that's the problem what kind of code?
    (they explained me what code I need but I don't understand everything they said that I need to go to my exam board website (edexcel) and I will find a code but I cannot find it ! )

    Can you help me please ?
    thank you in advance
    I would like to express my gratitude for all your help in this matter

    Short courses are not the full GCSE.

    I think I gave you the code for the full GCSE course above. It's 2FR01.

    Be aware that Edexcel French GCSE 2FR01 includes coursework and not just exams. There are two exams - Listening and Reading and two pieces of coursework Speaking and Writing. Many centres won't accept external candidates for this reason.

    I think you would need to do an IGCSE to avoid coursework. As for the cost of Edexcel French, the actual cost of entry for the exam is very cheap, around £30, but you may have to sign up for a whole course in order to get the coursework done so it will be much more expensive.

    Edexcel do a French IGCSE (4FR0). This is 100 % exam based. You would need to check with your college that they will accept an IGCSE and then find a centre which offers it to external candidates.

    Yes. This course was introduced in 2011 and is still current. Give your exam centre the code 4FR0.

    You will be entered for 3 papers - 4FR0/01 (listening), 4FR0/02 (reading and writing) and 4FR0/03 (speaking).
    If you click on the specifications on the linked page it will give you an idea of the exam content.
