GCSE English Language

  • Teaching from: September 2015
  • Exams from: June 2017
  • Specification code: 8700
  • QAN code: 601/4292/3

Our specification is designed to inspire and motivate your students, providing appropriate stretch and challenge whilst ensuring that the assessment and texts are, as far as possible, accessible to all students.

It enables your students to develop the skills they need to read, understand and analyse a wide range of different texts and write clearly.

We've developed two equally-balanced papers, each assessing reading and writing in an integrated way.
