Course description

English Language GCSE:

GCSE English Language is an essential qualification for progression onto A Level and many other Level 3 courses. It is also frequently required for university entry in the UK. We offer an intensive, one-year course that will develop your reading, writing and speaking skills.

This is the linear 9-1 GCSE qualification. A linear qualification means that students must sit all their exams at the end of the course in June. There are no tiers of entry for GCSE English; all students will sit the same exam papers.

This is an intensive course requiring full commitment and attendance. The focus is on developing written skills and improving the quality of the English you use. You will also develop your ability to analyse the effect of language in different texts.

The course is assessed by two written exams each worth 50% of the final grade. In both exams the tests are unseen. In addition students are required to complete a speaking and listening assessment – although this is not part of the final weighting of the GCSE grade.

This is an essential subject for progression to A Level, BTEC Level 3 and many other courses. Many universities and employers require that you have at least a C / 4 in this subject.
