    Hello everyone, at the moment i'm studying Maths, business and law in A levels. I'm in my first year however i would like to do Arabic a level aswell i have a basic understanding of it and have graduated (at gcse level) from arabic and islamic studies. I would like my previous teacher which i graduated from to teach me the specification in the A level however i'm not sure how would this work. Is it allowed? And also if i could then where would i take the exam and how?

    (P.s i'm located in Birmingham uk)

    If you only have rudimentary knowledge in arabic to get good enough to get a decent grade at a level it would take a long time because the criteria is really hard insofar that natives have told me they had trouble with it

    I've Been studying for 6 years since I was 10 I wrote GCSE level because the education level is different in the way I've been taught. I've been learning the Modern arabic and have studied in dept a lot of similar books that the exam boards use

    Speak to your head of sixth form. They will probably get you to go to your exams officer and ask to be put down for the extra exam(s)-(you sit them at your own school/college in May/June). I did it last year at sixth form; they didn't offer alevel arabic (teaching) but were able to put me down for the extra exams. There is a fee of ~£50 per paper?
    Get it done quickly because the alevel entry deadline is soon.
    If your sixth form don't agree to it (they might think your'e unnecessarily increasing your work load or whatever), then contact external centres- I think doing it externally does cost more because the centre charge an additional fee, andd it's more effort- finding and travelling to the place. You'd have to sit the exams in an environment you aren't used to aswell
    Hope this helps in some way. Goodluck
