Entry Requirements

You must have already achieved a grade D at GCSE English Language in the last two years. All applicants must complete an initial assessment and would be expected to be working at level 2.

Delivery and Assessment

You will complete five controlled assessments, in class under exam conditions and these will include the speaking and listening activities as well as a response to a text you have read, a piece of creative writing and your study of spoken language. You will sit one written paper in which you will answer three questions, based on reading and writing tasks. Your teachers will guide and support you through this process, identifying your strengths and advising you on areas for improvement.


Success in GCSE English Language opens the doors to a wide range of career opportunities and is essential for anyone considering an application to university.
