English at YARM SCHOOL
The best reason to study English Literature at A level is because you enjoy reading, discussing and thinking about ideas, people, relationships and books. Nearly all university departments - Science and Medicine very definitely included - view a good grade in English A level as evidence of a broad, well-trained mind, capable of precise communication, and interested in cultural affairs. Naturally, it combines well with other arts and humanities subjects. There is a strong emphasis on independent judgement and thought, along with opportunities for creative writing. The texts you read will vary greatly; some will be recent, some ancient. All will have been chosen to interest anyone inclined to want to know more about life.
Usually, B grades in English and English Literature are expected, However, in exceptional cases, we can accept students with a grade C, subject to teacher recommendation.
