This course will prepare you for the AS-Level Dutch and A2-Level Dutch examinations set by the OCR examination board (codes F881 and F882).

Each lesson takes up to four hours of study to complete, and you may study at your own pace and send in your homework assignments when you are ready.

The course is delivered in three parts. Part 2 and part 3 will be delivered on completion of the preceding part.

We usually recommend that students begin this course in the autumn, say in September or October, to prepare for exams the following summer. However, you may start any time from the beginning of August until the beginning of January. The very latest starting date is the second week of January provided you are prepared to complete 2 lessons per week.

This course is suitable for adults and children from the age of about 16.

The cost of enrolling for the exams and any mock exams are not included with this course.

The A Level Dutch exams can not be taken at the Dutch Language School.

We will provide details of other OCR exam centres.
