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.

Exams will take place at an official exam centre in May/June. Exam bookings will be made each January for the following May/June by one of our higher education team. Exam location will depend on which centres are open. The team member arranging the exam for each student will always recommend the centre closest to the address of the learner.

This course bundle includes everything you need to gain your A Level English Literature, including a mock exam paper and the exams themselves.

The exams will cover literary genres and texts. You will also have a non-exam assessment of theory and independence.
