English Language and Literature A Level at Chipping Campden School
There are three examined components and one non-exam assessment component. The first component focuses on non-fiction spoken and written texts from an OCR/EMC anthology. You will compare an anthology text with a short unseen text which is clearly linked by, for example, theme, purpose or mode. The second component explores poetry and drama. The third component involves the study of narrative fiction, from a choice of six prose texts. Students explore narrative methods and techniques in their chosen text, and then apply their knowledge and understanding in the production of their own opening to a narrative. The Non-exam assessment comprises two tasks - an analytical essay comparing a non-fiction text with a free choice text from any genre and the production of a non-fiction original writing piece.
