FAQs for AS & A Level Languages (Set Texts)


AS/A Level Languages (other than English): Are students who prepare more than the minimum required set texts at an advantage in the exam room?

Only in the sense that they potentially will have more choice of questions. In reality, demands on classroom time mean that it is unlikely that many candidates will have prepared more than 3 texts.

AS/A Level Languages (other than English): Can I suggest a set text for a future syllabus?

Please contact us at, and your suggestion will be put forward to the relevant Assessment Manager. We welcome suggestions from our schools for set texts in future series.

AS/A Level Languages (other than English): Is it a requirement to use particular editions of the set texts?

If a particular edition is not specified in the syllabus booklet, students can use any edition (so long as it is the full text).
