A-Level Japanese and ChineseWatch this thread
I did Chinese outside of school, but we contacted my school to see whether I was able to take the exam, & they said yes. In my case, I took Edexcel & studied in a Chinese school every Saturday. The teacher supplied work for us to do and it helped me to learn the content (written, listening and oral). She also gave us all the information and resources about the exam and its content. +She was able to travel to my school to be the speaker for my oral exam (Which I think you need to find in advance before the exam- but idk if its the same after I took it last yeah haha) The best option for you might be to find if you have any Chinese schools nearby and enroll in them. They usually do cost money to enroll but I believe it's really worth it. Going to a Chinese school really helps as the teachers there are almost all Chinese and will allow you to speak the language more fluently.
If you guys have any questions I'll try to answer them
Fun fact of the day:
I'm also Half Chinese
Not only does she use content that is in the corresponding textbook, she also uses videos and other reading books related to the content she got when in China. Our homework would consist of memorising phrases from the textbook for a spelling test, writing extended response questions, copying down pieces of text in the textbook and memorising text or folklore by which you will explain to the class.
In class, we'd mainly use the textbook but anything that we didn't understand or didn't explain the content very well she added her own resources in. She also used a workbook which corresponded to the textbook as worksheets for us to do.
Hope this helped

There are only kanji lists, not vocabulary ones. Hmm.
And on the preview you're able to see the content of the book & what the vocab looks like
I got A* in Chinese, A in French and a B in Spanish
Sometimes I wish that I chose A-level Chinese rather than As level because I could've got so many more UCAS points in the bank I mean... I misheard my teacher's unprepared question and started to talk about food rather than tv shows & she even asked me tf I was on about! Because of that I genuinely thought that I failed my As but came out with an A!
I did that in my gcse; my teacher asked the name of my favourite actor and I responded by saying my own name
Are you in year 12? I’ve just started a-levels and already know I don’t have enough time (or motivation) to self study an entire a-level!
I love languages I wish I’d picked one for a-level
