Good news! Despite numbers of candidates taking A-level in other Foreign Languages has again fallen, the take-up of Chinese at A-level has bucked the trend.  According to The Independent, figures show the numbers have risen by more than a third from 2,372 last year to 3,237. According to exam boards, this is due to English-born pupils taking an interest in the subject rather than just Chinese speaking immigrants.
