EDUQAS GCSE (9-1) in English Language
In English Language, learning focuses on developing the skills for two exam components. The reading elements require students to read and answer questions on twentieth-century fiction and nineteenth and twenty-first century non-fiction writing. The writing tasks include narrative and transactional writing.
For the English Literature specification, students will read and analyse ‘Romeo and Juliet’, ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens and ‘An Inspector Calls’ by J B Priestley. They will also be tested in their understanding of prepared and unseen poetry.
