Exam board: AQA
Course code/specification number: 8702
Level of qualification: GCSE

What will students learn about?

Students will study a range of text types from different time periods and learn how to analyse writer’s intentions, commenting on the effect of language, structure and form. They will learn how writers can be influenced by the time in which they were writing. Students will learn how to express their ideas in confident, coherent writing and look for alternative interpretations.

What skills will students develop and demonstrate?

Students will learn to be analytical readers who can take information from different places and synthesise this into their argument. They will develop their ability to read for meaning and to evaluate the effect created by different techniques

What grades can students access?

Students can access all grades. In 2017 the GCSE grading system changed and students will receive a grade between 1 – 9 with 9 being the highest available. 

How will students’ learning be assessed?

The external assessment is in the form of two examinations. These are both ‘closed book’ examinations which means students are not allowed to take the texts that they have studied into the examination hall with them. The first examination (Paper 1) focuses on a play by Shakespeare and a 19th Century Novel. This exam is worth 40% of this GCSE.

The second examination (Paper 2) focuses on Modern texts and poetry. This examination is worth 60% of the GCSE. Students will study an anthology of poetry based on a particular theme which will be examined in the examination alongside an unseen poem which the students will be expected to analyse.

What can students progress on to after completing this course?

A GCSE in English Language is considered a prerequisite for most courses and expected by most employers. The abilities developed by this GCSE are part of everyday life and will be required by whatever path the students decide to take. Of course, further study in this area is possible and many students go on to study ‘A’ levels in a range of subjects associated with English Literature and beyond that to
University. For example, English Literature, English Language, English Language and Literature, Creative Writing etc.
