    So I know how everything has changed but I don't get it. Our English teacher told us there weren't exams until the 2nd year but then our French teacher had given us dates of our exams that are in the first year. So do we have actual exams in the first year or not?

    you will still have exams in the first year but they're just exams set by the school not the exam board, I think they're used for your ucas application and to get predicted grades based off them, plus they will need to see how much progress people have made

    I thought that but then our French teacher said that he gets an examiner in for our speaking and has a certain deadline and everything. I'm just so confused!

    they're probably trying to make it similar to the real exams, unless I'm wrong and the French a level won't be changing spec just yet?

    check with your teacher, but I think French has reformed so they're probably just exams set by your school
