A range of texts and authors is studied – including prose, poetry and drama – from the time of Shakespeare, or earlier, to the present day. Assessment will be by a combination of coursework and examination. There will be both open-book and traditional style examinations, with some synoptic assessment, where skills and knowledge developed throughout the course are tested at the end. It is recommended that students should have achieved a Grade B in GCSE English Literature. Students who have not achieved a Grade C will find the option very difficult.
