Assessment of Course
There are two formal ‘closed book’ examinations worth 100% at the end of the course.
The final grade is awarded for students’ performance in the examinations.
The English Literature specification is designed to inspire, challenge and motivate every student, regardless of ability level. We cover a range of texts including some that will be familiar, as well as new ones that will inspire teenage readers. The course is fully co-teachable with GCSE English Language, so students will benefit from the transferable skills and be awarded a second GCSE certified by AQA.
What will I study on this course?
- William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet
- Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
- J. B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls
- AQA’s Power and Conflict anthology of poems
