Following the Minister of Education’s announcement, on 6 January 2021, that all GCSE, AS and A2 exams due to take place in January, February, May and June will be cancelled, we are working to update our subject areas as soon as possible. In the meantime, should you have any queries, please email CCEA Helpline [email protected].

Please note: a Specification Addendum is in place for the 2020/2021 academic year for those candidates completing their course in Summer 2021. View Specification Addendum.

Speaking Examination

GCSE Speaking pre-release topics from June 2020 (for examination in Summer 2021)

Please note the pre-release for 2021 is the same as per summer 2020 examinations.

Conversation Topic 1
Travel and tourism. (Context 2)

Please note centres may prepare for 'travel and tourism' only or the entire topic as below
- Travel and tourism (for example holidays, destinations, transport, tourist information, weather, directions, accommodation, activities, shopping and eating out)

The pre-release should not be used as part of a mock examination for this cohort, but you can use the examination format to conduct a mock, e.g. Role-plays, Conversation 1 and Conversation 2.
