In a nutshell
With a vibrant mix of research and practical written work, this course covers a wide range of English studies.
This course is for you if...
... You love to read and write
... You enjoy analysing and discussing literature
... You want a deeper understanding of the written word
What will I be doing?
A Level English Language and Literature is a demanding but enjoyable subject, which allows plenty of scope for discussion and the development of your own ideas. It’ll appeal to you if you enjoy reading books and discussing them with others, writing of all kinds and close analysis of fiction and non-fiction texts.
You’ll study two units at AS and three units at A Level. Throughout the course you’ll be taught the frameworks of language study and the skills required for close analytical reading. You’ll learn to analyse and compare a variety of written and spoken texts and write some creative pieces.
At AS, you’ll study an anthology of pre-1914 poetry, Truman Capote's In Cold Blood (prose) and Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named Desire (drama). At A Level, you’ll study Shakespeare's King Lear (drama), Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale (prose) and will produce a coursework folder of 2500-3500 words, inspired by a chosen literary genre.
Full commitment to attendance is required, as is respect for others, enthusiasm for the subject and self-motivation. You’ll be continually assessed and there is an expectation that you’ll continue your studies and coursework during your own time.
Regular homework, class work test marks and mock examination grades will enable you to measure your progress. At AS Level, you’ll be formally assessed by two summer examinations and, at A Level, by coursework and two summer examinations. Upon completion, you’ll achieve:
- AS Level English Language and Literature
- A Level English Language and Literature
- Skills Activities
- English and Maths
What is expected of me?
To enter the course, you’ll need a minimum of 5 GCSEs at Grade C or above, to include Maths/Maths Numeracy and Grade B in English Language or Literature.
You’ll need to be self-motivated, hardworking, enthusiastic about the written word and enjoy read and writing in your own time.
What comes next?
English is a highly respected qualification which can be a starting point for many careers. It’s particularly useful for anyone who intends to go into Teaching, Law, Journalism, Management of all kinds and Social Science.
