    I made someone prepare Urdu A level in a week, and she scored an A* , me myself have an A* in urdu
    make sure you have notes with you. (for text paper) go through the specimen paper and its er, look carefully. Practice the comprehension and write essays, make sure you write neatly

    yes it's a full credit subject and u'll be awarded with it

    A-level's urdu is not a valuable subject. An A in Urdu will not really have an effect on your university applications. But if you still want to keep it for an easy A and for the sake of getting better at Urdu, then you should. Urdu is basically a subject with alot of rote learning. You can do selective study, get prepared notes from someone or make them yourself and then you can learn them by rote in the end. So it doesn't matter if you don't have the best of writing skills.
    My advice, study A-levels Urdu only if you had Urdu First Language in O-Levels. Otherwise, drop the idea since it will be a tough job to get accustomed to studying poetry and prose after many years of not studying it.

    i dont agree with u, becuz i have given IGCSE urdu as a second language and got an A in 2009 may/june. and i have also studied Alevel urdu for few day, and i find its easy.
    but what i think is that it differ from person to person.

    Bro what were your o level grades????i agree that it varies from person to person...Many people who didnt keep first lang urdu in o levl were able to get gud grade in this but they all were really good students..So im just unsure whether an avg student like me can get good score in urdu or not.
    i had 4As in o lvl.A in second lang urdu too.

    Im looking forward to this subject,i heard good notes can make work a lot easier in this subject...


    Other thn Urdu,im left with AICT which is considered the second easiest subject in A lvl..but i dont have much info regarding this subject..I'll be searching for info on this subject aswell,but more chances are that im going to go for urdu once im sure that its not a vry big deal for an average student....

    Can we underline important things and fold pages of the text only book?
    The official letter does not mention any such restrictions but my urdu teacher told me not to but it would take up alot of the time thia way ;-;
