A Level English Literature

Studying English Literature at A Level is challenging – but immensely rewarding: 
 It broadens exponentially your imaginative and sympathetic horizons 

  • It builds your resilience by equipping you to grapple with the complexity of the real world  
  • It marks you out to employers as diligent, broad-minded and resourceful 
  • It trains you to analyse in depth, seeing far past mere surface meaning 
  • It provides core training for the study of any arts or science subject at university. 

 The following booklet will help you use the time available to you between now and September to prepare fully for the course.
