Students study the AQA 8702 specification.
The specification takes a skills-based approach to the study of English literature that is consistent across the genres. The question papers and mark schemes allow teachers to get back to inspirational literature teaching and allow students of all abilities to achieve their best on every question.
The texts we currently study are Romeo and Juliet, An Inspector Calls, Conflict Poetry and a Christmas Carol.
English Literature comprises of two exams: the first is 1 hour and 45 minutes and the second is 2 hours and 15 minutes.
For both of these questions, students are given an extract from the text to help them with their response.
We recommend the CGP guides for English as they are both accessible and affordable. Please find a list below:
