English Literature (IGCSE) (8710)

Our Level 1/2 Certificate in English Literature (IGCSE) offers you the flexibility to structure a course that best suits the needs and interests of your students.

It enables you to enhance their appreciation of literature and develop their skills in studying literary texts. It also gives students a Level 1/2 qualification equivalent to GCSE.

This qualification counts as the English measure in school performance tables from 2014 when taken with any English Language GCSE or IGCSE. The specification complements the AQA Certificate in English Language (IGCSE).

This is a linear qualification assessed by two exams, or one exam and coursework (which makes up 40 per cent of the assessment). There is no controlled assessment.

This specification is particularly suitable for students who are comfortable with independent learning and who want to go on to study A-level English. There are no prior learning requirements.
