For Modern Foreign Language oral tests, examiners are appointed in one of three ways:

  • by Macclesfield Tutorial College for the more popular subjects; the tests are held at the College;
  • by the examination board; the examiner will visit the College to carry out the tests;
  • by another examination centre; our candidates will travel to that centre for the test.

The oral tests are held before the end of April for the Summer exam series.

The speaking and writing components of GCSE Modern Language subjects are now carried out as Controlled Assessment Tasks. These may involve extra supervised preparation. Please refer to the specifications for more details about the requirements for your chosen subject.

Additional costs are associated with this service. Please refer the “Scale of Fees” page under the Application tab.

Please note that all coursework should be accompanied by the appropriate Candidate Record Form signed by yourself and by your tutor, declaring the work to be your own.
