Hey I understand you considering there are many types of Arabic stages.The famous one being Fushah Arabic.

What sentence are you trying to translate? one thing to note is that the sentence in Arabic vary like the present past and future which can get quite confusing.

Let me know, if you require help please. Thanks.

Wow, I'm surprised they let you take a language A-Level without a GCSE first, especially one as hard as Arabic - usually you need a B at GCSE even for Spanish and French. Personally I think it'll be a struggle for you, but if you just immerse yourself in Arabic language and practice at least half an hour a day you should catch up. Maybe first, be able to read the alphabet by heart, and learn basic grammar, and try language learning websites. Also later on for comprehension purposes you can take up a TV show in Arabic for when you want to revise but feel tired lmao. Don't know if you use BBC language resources but they're useful to me. I study Spanish and Russian so I can't specifically help with Arabic, but it should be the same learning method for all languages I guess. Good luck!

I speak fluent Arabic and the exam was very difficult even for me. You have to have a wide range of vocabulary, sentence structure, verbs and adjectives along with the hard bases of the Arabic language. I doubt that you'll be able to pass it if you can't even structure a sentence. You also have to prepare a novel btw.
I'd recommend you start preparing yourself by practising and writing out different essays for a variety of topics including education, weather, hobbies, news, history etc. also read books in Arabic and try to translate them into English and then do the opposite

BBC has news in Arabic, and Arabic beginners resources with videos and stuff! If you can't find a good TV show there are always Arabic speaking Youtubers.

I am going to run(future tense)-Ana zahibu lileadui.

Sorry I tried to write in Arabic but it was going backwards.
