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
My local area. (Context 2)

Please note centres may prepare for 'my local area' only or the entire topic as below
- My local area and the wider environment (for example home, neighbourhood, town or city, places to visit, region and country)

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.
