I’ve now found out I may not have the predicted grades for the course I’m thinking about at uni .I still have a year left but as I’m thinking about taking a gap year I’m also thinking about taking a language as an a level privately.This would be at a centre but I’m not sure how private centres work or operate .

I was thinking of doing it in either Urdu or Punjabi as I understand and can speak Urdu but I can’t write it and I can understand and read Punjabi I can’t speak it .I was wondering if there was anything I could do or any resources I could explore .

I would be very grateful if someone could give me advice .

Any help would be appreciated.
Thx .

For the learning - definitely implement Anki, it's an awesome tool for language learning.
For the private exam - make sure you explore your options, doing A-levels privately can be expensive!

some universities do not accept a levels done in native languages or want a higher grade in them compared to someone else that isn't a native speaker that done the same a level (basically you will need to get the highest grades) so as long as these are not your native languages you should be fine. however you might want to research what your chosen universities say etc

Is a native language a mother language I put on my uni application? If so both Punjabi and Urdu can’t be considered my mother tongue because my mother tongue is another language (not english either and it’s no available for exams ) .

Punjabi A level doesn't have a speaking element, s that may be the one to go for https://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/lang...l/panjabi-7682
