Salam, if you're fluent it won't matter? You can look at some A-level Persian past papers to get an idea of their difficulty.

Salam and thank you! It’s just that when I talked to the college instructor about doing an alevel in Persian he said that it’s way harder than GCSEs especially if I won’t have a teacher. But I don’t believe the difficulty matters especially because I’m fluent and I have my parents to help me.

Yes if you are fluent it will be fine if you study hard and prepare well. Just look at some sample examination material and see for yourself if you think you can do it:

Thank you! I was wondering as well (I’m fluent in Persian and Kurdish) apparently universities don’t accept alevels that are to do with your native language (besides English of course) but Persian is like a second or even a third language for me like I kind of just picked it up and Kurdish is my native language so this means that universities have to accept the Persian alevel right? And that they cannot decline it because it is not my native language?

Best to ring up the Unis you want to go to and find out, just to make sure. Different universities have different rules

Theres no such a thing as native language on ucas application, universities see it as a foreign language u can also include it in ur personal statement saying that u spent time learning it .I asked many universities and they said they would accept it as a 4th alevel

no it wouldnt help you get a degree however it will be a strong point in your ucas application for example im applying to dentistry and if i get an A* it woud be the first grade like A*AAB and they wouldn't know which alevel it is unless going into details so it will help ur application to stand out.
