English Literature AS/A2 at Islington Sixth Form Consortium (IC6)
English Literature B is divided into four units. Two of these are followed at AS and two at A2. The A-level is part exam and part coursework. Different genres within literature are studied as well as Marxist and feminist critical theories. All of these provide exciting new ways of reading texts. The set texts range from Shakespeare to The Kite Runner and students thus gain a breadth of study that is stimulating and inspiring. At A2 students are given new freedoms in choosing their own texts for study.
Unit 1: Aspects of Narrative
Unit 2: Dramatic Genres
Unit 3: Texts and Genres
Unit 4: Further and Independent Reading
Students must have a minimum of 6 GCSEs at grade C or above. Minimum grade B must have been reached at both English Literature and English Language GCSE.
80% examination, 20% coursework.
English forms part of many combined-subject higher education courses and can lead to a wide range of careers for example in the arts, journalism and the media, as well as business studies, the law and administration.
