English Literature A2 at Immanuel College

Course description

Literature A level is split into four units - two to be completed for AS and two for A2. Each year you will need to do both a piece of coursework and an exam. The course builds on the GCSE skills of responding to a range of literary texts, and seeks to develop confident, independent and reflective readers. You will also broaden and deepen your understanding of the writers art and of the interpretation of texts and their times. You will be expected to read a range of literary texts and some literary criticism.

Course content

This is a demanding and enjoyable course, requiring independent and active reading that leads to the presentation of convincing and well-supported opinions based on close textual analysis. Additionally, the course develops understanding of human and social concepts as well as the analysis of the ways in which these are expressed. English Literature is viewed as a versatile and valuable course by universities and employers.

Entry requirements

You must have passed your GCSE English, preferably with at least a Higher Grade C or above.

Future opportunities
