Who is it for?

You could progress onto an AS or A2 English qualification or complete additional GCSEs such as mathematics.

  • Paper 1: Explorations in Creative Reading and Writing

  • Non-examination Assessment: Spoken Language
  • Assessment for this course is by set assessments throughout the course and two external examinations at the end of it.

    Additional costs

    The course fee is as advertised on the website plus examination fee, however currently for most students who have not achieved a C grade or above it is free.
