Studying your A Level

A Level English Literature encourages students explore the meanings and motivations behind literary texts.

It will challenge you examine texts within context and introduce you to the concept that no text exists in isolation. Rather it is the result of what the author experienced – and their views – at the time.

Understanding the context within which something is written is a key element of A Level English Literature. It enables you to investigate the texts, drawing out patterns using a variety of reading strategies and perspectives.

During your studies you will examine the writings of Shakespeare, World War I and literature from 1945 onwards.

A Level English Literature will help you analyse and compare a range of genres including prose and poetry. This will give you a comprehensive understanding of English literature’s rich history and context.

This course will equip you with advanced communication and research skills that will support you at degree level.

Upon completion of A Level English Literature, you will be ready to sit AQA’s official A Level English literature exam. Everything you need to succeed, including a mock exam paper, is included in this home study programme.

Getting Started

Stonebridge Associated Colleges is a leading provider of distance learning courses in the UK. That means we put you at the centre of the learning. This allows you the flexibility to study when it suits you, not us.

There are no classrooms, timetables or evenings spent in draughty old learning annexes. You have the power to complete your studies when you will be at your most effective, in an environment you will be most comfortable in.

You still get the academic support from your dedicated tutor. They will provide advice, guidance and feedback on your assignments. This allows you to progress in a structured, positive way.

You can start learning from the moment you have enrolled with us. We don’t have term times, just an online portal with all your course material ready and waiting.

As you progress through your course, you will study the following modules:

  • Introduction to English Literature
  • Death of a Salesman (drama text)
  • John Keats (pre-1900 text)
  • Othello
  • Analysis of language
  • Aspects of tragedy in Othello - Themes for discussion
  • Crime writing as a genre
  • The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
  • When Will There Be Good News? (post-2000 text)
  • George Crabbe, Robert Browning and Oscar Wilde (pre-1900 text)
  • Coursework Component
  • Comparison of one poetry and one prose text, informed by school of literary criticism
  • Exam preparation

At the end of each unit there is an assignment to complete. Once this has been completed and submitted to your tutor he or she will respond with your grade as well as detailed feedback. Following successful completion of each unit you’ll be exam ready!

We’ll provide you with a guide on how to find an exam place near to you should you decide to sit the formal exam.
