Theme 1: Identity and culture covers the following four topics with related sub-topics shown as bullet points.

Social media.
Mobile technology.
3.1.1.3 Topic 3: Free-time activities

Music.
Cinema and TV.
Food and eating out.
Sport.

Charity/voluntary work.
Healthy/unhealthy living.
3.1.2.3 Topic 3: Global issues

The environment.
Poverty/homelessness.
3.1.2.4 Topic 4: Travel and tourism

At GCSE you’re not required to speak 100% fluently and it is expected that you’ll make quite basic mistakes for the average grade like using the wrong gender of words, wrong verb tense. For a higher grade you’ll still likely make mistakes but less frequently and you’ll generally be able to understand most of what comes up in the exam . Check out past papers to see . Here you are :

Here is the list of GCSE vocab you should know . You’re not usually expected to know all of them (I’d say about 60% perhaps...) but for the highest grade you’d probably need to know at least 85% or 90% .

I think they were talking about what the qualification equivalent is in Italy to GCSE, not doing Italian as a language

Thank you very much for your reply but that was not quite what I was looking for.
I meant what is the italian equivalent of GCSE English and Maths.
Sorry for my inaccuracy 🤗

Grazie per la risposta!
Io dovrei fare gli ALevels che dovrebbero equivalere alla Maturità Italiana. Per fare ciò, loro richiedono i GCSE, qualifica che normalmente ottengono a 16 anni e facendoci un ragionamento, dovrebbe equivalere al secondo anno di superiori. Ho bisogno di capire se è veramente così e che posso magari consegnare la pagella del secondo anno di superiori o se equivale a qualche altra qualifica. Se conoscete persone anche qualificate che possono confermare ciò o darmi una mano a capire, ne sarei infinitamente grata.

Grazie mille 😊
