English Literature

Course Title: 

A Level English Literature

Type:

A LEVEL

Entry Requirements:

Students will need to have obtained at least 5 Grade 5s or above, including English and Maths.

About:

English Literature will allow you to develop your interest in and appreciation of English literature through learning how to analyse and respond to prose, poetry, drama and critical texts. We explore a range of important and interesting themes that shed light of our own lives and the lives of those around us.

Assessment:

Students are assessed at the end of Year 13 in two examinations, each worth 40% of the full A-Level. A non-examined assessment (NEA), in which students compare themes from two books of their choice, is completed during Year 13 and is worth the final 20% of the overall grade..

What students say:

Studying English Literature has opened my eyes to the incredible complexity of the world around me. I have loved studying and sharing my opinions about the texts on the course, and the NEA has really helped me develop my written argument skills – perfect for university!
