All learners beginning a new course of GCSE English will need to be working towards the new specifications. The QCA criteria for English see the introduction of a third GCSE: English, English Language and English Literature. All three GCSE English specifications have been designed to be enjoyable and inspiring and to allow you to make the most of your passion for English. They all provide good links to further study.
- Co-teachability between English and English Language.
- The generic tasks offered allows centres to choose their own texts.
- The accessibility of the Foundation questions in the one exam unit in English and English Language.
- The link between the spoken language study and speaking and listening activities.
