Hey everyone!
So, I'm taking my GCSE this year and I'm not doing spanish (from some bad decisions). But I really want to do spanish for my A-Levels so that I can study at a spanish Uni. I might be moving to an english school in Madrid for my A levels where I can pick up spanish fast.
The problem is that I probably would need Spanish GCSE in order to do A Level Spanish. I do grasp spanish quite easily, and I try my best to speak/learn at home. Should I have a stab at taking the GCSE spanish exam seperatley in 2019? Or should I do it in 2020 and then take my spanish A level during my gap year or something?

is there any chance you'd be able to talk to one of the teachers to see if you can be entered for gcse spanish (2019??) or do you think you need a bit longer to learn the spec?

I think i'd need longer to learn the spec. But would there be any point in having a stab at it anyway?

there might be, though there may be a chance that if you're proficient enough at spanish you can do the a-level without the gcse; maybe talk to your language teachers for advice- eg. could you do the a-level without doing the gcse? doing the a-level in your gap year doesn't sound like a bad idea though.

Most modern language courses at uni allow you to take a language ab initio (from scratch), and this could be Spanish for you. However you would need an A level in another language as you generally do two languages, with one being post-A Level.
