The ‘A’ Level in English Language is a stimulating and interesting course with analysis of a range of texts and language issues and debates being core.
Students develop familiarity and competences with using frameworks for textual analysis to evaluate how meanings and representations are created. As well as this, students explore and evaluate key language topics. Year 12 topics include Language and Region, Language and Gender, Language and Social Groups and Language and Technology. This is developed upon in the second year of the course where students study Child Language Acquisition, Language Change and English as a Global Language. The course is assessed at the end of the two-year course (with internal assessment at the end of Year 12) and there are two final examinations. The Non-Examination Assessment (NEA) is worth 20% of the overall award. Students follow the AQA GCE qualification.
