IGCSE/GCSE English Literature
- Week 1: 25 March – 29 March
- Week 2: 1 April – 5 April
Length of Course
4 hours per text
2pm to 6pm daily
The different requirements of the various exam boards make it impossible to offer one course suitable for everyone. The texts offered here have been selected on the basis of their popularity across the spectrum of exam boards. Each text or poetry session is four hours in length and will cover essay technique for the various types of GCSE question, i.e. passage-based essays, discursive essays, imaginative essays, etc.
The texts are not taught on a board specific basis but it is vital that we know which board is being studied in order to ensure that the appropriate past papers are used.
Please indicate the examination board on the registration form.
Please note that whilst we can give supplementary help with understanding texts studied for coursework we cannot help with the coursework pieces themselves. To do so would be to interfere with work that must be vouched for as the student’s own by their regular teacher.
The timetable will be as follows:
|Monday 25 March||2–6pm||Picnic at Hanging Book|
|Tuesday 26 March||2–6pm||An Inspector Calls|
|Wednesday 27 March||2–6pm||Jekyll and Hyde|
