Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment

Support

A wide range of support is available to assist teachers delivering our GCSE in French. Teachers and students can make use of the following:

  • specimen papers and mark schemes;
  • a resource pack;
  • controlled assessment exemplar tasks;
  • controlled assessment mark schemes; and
  • the GCSE French Specification.

We run support seminars and agreement trials at various times throughout the year, and we can also arrange centre support visits. Please check our website regularly for more information.

Let us know what other support materials you would find useful. Complete our online comment form and tell us what we can do for you!

We intend to expand our range of support to include the following:

  • past papers and mark schemes;
  • exemplary performances;
  • Chief Examiner’s reports;
  • resource packs; and
  • student guides.
