"Peter spared no effort in identifying precisely which weaknesses existed in the French knowledge of our two sons - and these were quite distinctive -but, further, in a focused and resolute manner set them exercises in order to eradicate these; doing so with a lightness of touch that ensured that the tutorials were welcomed rather than resented by two adolescents. They both received top grades thereafter"MOTHER OF KEYSTONE FRENCH STUDENT
"Abigail has been a super great help with German and I always understand things way better after a lesson with her! She has been particularly helpful for German speaking practice and practice for the oral examination. She’s always so lovely and I really look forward to our session"AS Level German student

What is the Difference Between IGCSE and GCSE?
What are GCSEs and IGCSEs? The General Certificate in Secondary Education or GCSE is a subject-based academic qualification taken by students in the UK at the end of their compulsory education in Year 11 (age 16). They are typically studied over a 2 or 3 year period, starting in either Year 9 or 10 depending on the subject, exam board or school and finish with a set of examinations at the end of the course.
The Modern Languages Aptitude Test (MLAT) at Oxford
Any candidate applying to study Modern Languages at Oxford or Cambridge will have to sit a written paper as part of the admissions process: The Modern Languages Aptitude Test (MLAT) at Oxford and the Modern and Medieval Languages Admissions Assessment (MMLAA) at Cambridge. There are big differences between the two tests, from the structure and what they are testing to when they are sat. This blog covers the Oxford MLAT. You can read our blog on the Cambridge MMLAA here.
