English Language and Literature AS at Bushey Meads School

Course description

To achieve the AS award you need to complete 2 units.
Unit 1: Exploring Voices in Speech and Writing:
This unit looks at speech and the creation of voice in a range of situations: from
everyday talk to the presentation of a voice in literature. Students will be assessed
though a 2 hour 15 minute examination involving several questions on unseen
materials and a single question on a studied literature text.
Unit 2 : Creating Texts:
This unit is a creative writing unit, entirely coursework based. We begin reading a
shared text (‘The Collector’ by John Fowles) and continue with wider reading of
short stories, poems and other texts. This leads to our own creative writing - based
on a theme of entrapment.

Entry requirements

You will need at least a B in English and English Literature at GCSE, and a love of reading (of any kind of text), an analytical mind and a willingness to discuss and debate are all desirable qualities.
