English Literature A Level at Enfield Grammar School
This course is for students who have some interest and enjoyment in reading. The reading requirement outside of lessons is not enormous but the two novels for Paper 2 do need to be read independently. Ideally students should also be prepared to engage with
a variety of literary texts and ideas and contribute to class activities
and discussion. Grade 6 and above at GCSE is desirable but entry on to the course does not depend on it English Literature A Level is referred to as one of the facilitating subjects and is highly regarded by universities.
The subject of English Literature is, in itself, not obviously related to established career paths but the skills required – communication and the ability to formulate and present compelling arguments – are close to the skill set for Law and managerial careers.
The course work can be re‐drafted with the support and supervision of your teacher. Usually the final essay will have gone through three of four drafts. This is worth 20% of the final grade.
