GCSE English at Bromley College of Further & Higher Education

Course description

The new GCSE English one year course looks a little different from the old specification you might have done at school.

Course content

There are now 3 units and each is assessed in a slightly different way.

There is no more course work. Instead students will produce a series of timed pieces of work in the classroom over the year, which are internally marked but then externally moderated-think of it as ‘timed course work!’ (Unit 3- 40% of final grade)

Speaking and listening is assessed in a similar way to the old GCSE but does not count towards your grade at GCSE, and is worth 20% of the final grade. (Unit 2)

Finally there is a large exam (2 hours and 15 mins.) which tests your ability to assess unseen Media texts and to write for specific audiences and purposes. (Unit 1-60% of final grade)

You can find all the details on AQA’s website: http//:www.aqa.org.uk. The course code is GCSE 4702

Entry requirements

4 GCSEs - 3 D grades and 1 C grade.
