Studying your A-Level

A-Level English Literature encourages students to explore the deeper meanings behind the written form.

Embarking on this course will challenge you to examine texts within a shared context. You will be introduced to the concept that no text exists in isolation, rather, it is the product of the time in which it was produced.

The course explores relationships that exist between texts and the contexts within which they are written, received and understood. The A-Level enables you to investigate texts, drawing out patterns using a variety of reading strategies and perspectives.

During your studies, you will examine the writings of Shakespeare, World War I and literature from 1945 onwards.

A-Level English Literature will help you analyse and compare poetry, prose and drama. This will provide you with a fascinating overview of English literature’s rich history and context.

This course will equip you with advanced communication and research skills that will support you at degree level.

Upon completion of A-Level English Literature, you will be ready to sit AQA’s official A-Level English literature exam. Everything you need to succeed, including a mock exam paper, is included in this home study programme.
