Edexcel International GCSE Classical Arabic (2009)
Here, you’ll find everything you need to study for or to teach Edexcel’s International GCSE in Classical Arabic, including key documents and the latest news.
Last year we communicated that Pearson was exploring the potential redevelopment of the current Pearson Edexcel International GCSE in Classical Arabic (4CA0).
After careful consideration we have made the decision to withdraw this qualification, in part due to the low entries for the current qualification and also due to having an existing GCSE qualification which we felt met the needs of Arabic learners more appropriately.
