The Paper 1 anthology is being refreshed for students starting their English Language and Literature (EMC) qualifications in September 2018. First used for teaching in 2015, the anthology is refreshed every three years (as mentioned on page 6 of the AS and A Level specifications). The new anthology will be assessed for the first time in summer 2019 (AS Level) and summer 2020 (A Level).
Candidates entered for A Level English Language and Literature (EMC) assessment in summer 2019 will use the original version of the anthology.
The updated anthology will be available as a free-to-download PDF from the qualification pages by the end of July, and printed copies will be available to order online to be despatched as the autumn term begins. Information regarding the printed copies will be available on the qualification pages nearer the time.
