English Literature

Entry Requirements

An attainment 8 score of 5.5 as well as a Grade 6 in English Language or Literature.

What is English Literature?

The study of English Literature is academically challenging, highly rewarding and it is an extremely popular facilitating subject. You will follow a lively and varied programme of study, with opportunities to read and discuss a wide range of texts, issues and authors. English Literature courses promote skills of analysis, critical thinking and offer an insight into the social, cultural and political history of Great Britain.

A Level Course Content and Assessment Criteria

You will explore a wide range of literary fiction texts, covering the main forms of prose, poetry and drama. In total, eight whole texts will be covered as well as preparation for unseen poetry. Throughout the course, you will be required to write coherently and analytically, using correct literary terminology, to make connections between texts and their contexts, and to explore how language form and structure shape meaning. You will also explore how other readers have interpreted texts critically.

How will you be assessed?

The A Level consists of three externally examined papers and one coursework component.

The first examination paper requires you to study one Shakespeare play and one other comedic or tragic drama, as well as an anthology of critical works. (30%)

The second examination paper requires you to study two prose texts linked to the theme, of “Science and Society”. (20%)

The third examination requires you to respond to unseen poetry and to a pre-prepared poetry collection of a named poet or poetic period, for example The Romantic period. (30%)

The coursework component allows you a great deal of personal choice in order to pursue your own literary interests. You may choose two whole texts from any form which are linked by theme, and must not have been studied elsewhere on the course. You will write one 3,000 word comparative essay on their texts and the relevant critical works. (20%)
