Cambridge First for Schools

Post by Stuart82 » Sat Jun 21, 2014 2:18 pm

Now that the First for Schools exam has been up and running a while, I'm interested in the experience of anyone who has been entering students for this rather than the 'standard' FCE.

Have you found it has made any difference either to the course itself or to student pass rates in exams? What has been the student feedback on it? In your opinion, should a school still offering First switch to First for Schools for teenage students?

Thanks for your help,

A pity that no one came back to you on this Stuart. Maybe now there's been another year of experience people will have some views to share. I'd also be interested to know.
