There are two forms of English at A level. The most popular is English Literature which allows you to study a mixture of drama, poetry and prose from a variety of writers, both classical and contemporary. English Literature requires you to build skills of criticism, analysis and evaluation and your assessment will be based on your ability to apply these in interpreting and discussing the texts.

English Language on the other hand involves the study of communication, linguistics and grammar and how English has developed and is developing as a language. English Language requires you to build a new body of knowledge and be conversant with linguistic terminology.

Both A levels are seen as giving the successful candidate a strong background in literacy and analysis and are favoured by university admissions tutors.
