What is English Literature?
This examination is designed for students who have gained high grades in GCSE/IGCSE English Language & Literature (or equivalent), and who possess an ability to analyse language together with a love of reading.
English Literature combines extremely well with such subjects as History, Psychology and Law. The emphasis on writing essays which involve textual analysis, formal language, and logical arguments will inevitably also improve performance in these other subjects.
As well as leading to the possibility of studying English itself, students also find that it facilitates entry to a wide variety of other degree courses, such as Law, Politics, History of Art, and Anthropology.
