Why choose A-Level English Lang Lit?
As well as being interesting in its own right, English Language and Literature as a subject is widely accepted as an excellent qualification for going on to a variety of further education courses or straight into employment. The variety of assessment styles used, such as re-creative writing, commentary writing, discursive essays and research-based investigative writing, allow you to develop a wide range of analytical and written skills.
What you will study in A Level English Lang Lit
How you will be assessed in A-Level Economics
English Language and Literature is your chance to study words and how they are used in a wide variety of contexts … and words are at the heart of everything we do as human beings!
PS. Not only is it a wonderful course that will make your brain bigger, but it also combines the best of English Language and English Literature courses. It is a great qualification whether you want to go straight to employment or to college or to university. It will teach you to think analytically, and to organise, assess and support arguments; it will develop your written and spoken communication skills.
PPS. And an English degree hasn’t done Stephen Fry any harm. And think what J.K. Rowling might have achieved if she’d done English rather than Classics.
