Hey guys so I have a question…
My school only provides igcse mandarin but I want to study igcse French
So can I not take igcse mandarin and instead take igcse French? I can study French by my tutor and the school can get the paper for me…

Is this possible?

I talked with the school, but this is their reply

*** is required to study one of Mandarin or Spanish. There is no option for omitting this section of the curriculum and/or 'free time' on his timetable. If *** is noit interested in Mandarin, he may choose Spanish as a Foreign Language. Please confirm which of the two languages he will study.

Why can't you refuse to sit any of the two and sit French privately?
That’s exactly what I want but the school is not allowing this idk why
I’m gonna email Cambridge today and if they give a green light I’ll talk to my school again
