Entry Requirements: Ideally around 120 hours of previous Arabic study whether Quranic or otherwise. This course, when studied in UK schools, would usually take 2 years, studying approximately two to three hours a week. Unlike European languages Arabic uses letters and sounds not found in these languages, as well as a writing system that operates from right to left.
Not Prepared?: Try our pre-GCSE Arabic sessions, 'Preparing for GCSE Arabic Course'.
GCSE Arabic at your School: If you are at school and are thinking of taking the GCSE in Arabic make sure you are prepared. Do you have a good Arabic background or do you have an Arabic tutor? Have you informed the school so that you can be registered in time? School registration deadline is usually in February but may also be earlier, depending on the school.
