'An excellent resource for "past paper day" or internal assessments. This is a very useful set of 3 practice papers that mirror perfectly the Edexcel A level Spanish Paper 1 examination.' V Tommasi, Head of Spanish and ZigZag Education Customer
"The resource covers lots of questions on theme 3 and 4 of the Edexcel specification and I find them very suitable for A Level, as they uses lots of advanced vocabulary and the exercises have a fair amount of challenging grammar, language structures etc. [...] I would be happy to use this resource with my own students for them to practice questions on themes 3 and 4. I would to use it as mock exams for students to have a go and see at what level they are and for them to expand their vocabulary. This way students can see for themselves what to expect on the actual exam and they can have time to revise before the exam." J I Ermina, Spanish teacher and independent reviewer

'The resource is of high quality and I find that the texts have an appropriate level of difficulty for the new AS level specification, with lots of high level Spanish vocabulary, including idiomatic expressions, grammar (subjunctive, conjunctions, relative adjectives etc.). Also the topics covered in the 3 practice papers reflect well the different AS level topics, as well as Hispanic literature texts (with literary texts by Federico García Lorca…).'
