IGCSE First Language syllabuses: I have a very strong foreign language speaker student. Can I enter him/her for a First Language examination?

You can. However you will need to bear in mind that the level of sophistication, accuracy and fluency required in a First Language examination is that of a native speaker. The assessment objectives for Foreign Language examinations are quite different, rewarding communication and giving opportunities for Listening and Speaking.

An alternative solution might be to enter your candidate for an AS Level in the Language.
