All Above-Board: A Comparativist Looks at the Advanced Level French Syllabuses of the Nine GCE Boards.
Weil, Robert
Journal of the Modern Language Association of Northern Ireland, n1 p6-12 1978
Advanced level French syllabuses of the nine GCE Boards in the United Kingdom are examined. The Southern Universities Joint Board has recently introduced the most radical innovations. As an alternative to its traditional examination it offers Syllabus "B" which dispenses with prescribed tests, but where each student must produce for the Oral Examiner a record of completed reading in French. The Northern Ireland GCE Examinations Board places great importance on the oral. Some perspectives on the teaching of literature are presented. Some competencies required by the parts of the language examination are also identified. (SW)
