This A Level Course covers the new linear specification aiming for exams in May/June 2018 or later years.

The course covers the following 8 units:

  • Unit 1: L’évolution de la société française

  • Unit 6: L’Occupation et la Résistance
  • Unit 7: Literature choice: Jean-Paul Sartre: Les mains sales
  • Unit 8: Preparing for the A-level Examinations

Each lesson begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study. Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self-assessment questions. There are 17 Tutor-Marked Assignments (known as TMAs).

This course prepares students as private candidates so they can book their exams at a suitable exam centre on completion of their studies.
