GCSE Languages

OCR’s GCSE Language suite offers your

students the freedom to choose the topics

they speak and write about, across eight

different languages.

This choice means that your students will be more

motivated as they can talk / write about something they

are interested in. There is also a short course option

that allows your students to study just two of the four

language components: speaking and listening or reading

and writing.

Over 75% of students who sat OCR GCSE Language

qualifications in 2010 achieved grades of A* to C.

As well as our French, German and Spanish qualifications

we also offer: Dutch, Gujarati, Persian, Portuguese, and

Turkish with exams in all four skills. If your students are

interested in ancient languages then they can choose

from Biblical Hebrew, Classical Greek and Latin.
