Course Description

We offer a range of A Levels where we guarantee to prioritise the marking of your coursework so you are fully ready to take your exams in June of each year.

WE DO NOT CHARGE EXTRA FOR THIS SERVICE.

An Advanced Level in English Language and Literature is a perfect qualification for those wishing to acquire knowledge and understanding of the subject to enable them to study at a higher level at university.

This specification is designed to:

- Develop candidates' understanding of English Language and Literature as a combined discipline
- Draw on their experiences at GCSE as well as offering a secure foundation for the study of English beyond A-level
- Develop interest in and enjoyment of independent reading
- Develop personal responses as critics of both literary and non-literary texts

Important Notice

We are not accredited to assess, moderate or examine coursework. In which case, it is candidates’ responsibility to access Edexcel advice via their examination centres. Moreover, it is candidates’ choice to determine which texts from lists A and B above they shall study and what comparative question they shall work on.

However, we are able to offer study materials for Unit 4, consisting of examples of poetry criticism and analysis, and Tutor Marked Assignments which will help prepare candidates to formulate titles and draft their coursework.

Please Note:
This course covers the new 2015 specification. As a result of the updated specification the first opportunity you will have to complete the exam for this course will be June 2017.
For more information please don’t hesitate to contact one of our course advisors.
