GCSE English


This course is intensive and demanding. You will be required to take a pre-course assessment to confirm your readiness to achieve a GCSE grade C or above in one year. Alternatively it may be possible for you to join a 2 week taster course in July 2013 which would include the pre-course assessment for GCSE English. You MUST be prepared to undertake homework between each session to succeed on this course and should anticipate a minimum of 3 hours work per week and often more. You must be able to attend every session of this course as it is very difficult to catch up on missed classes and assessments given the intense nature of the course. This course will follow AQA GCSE English specification. There will be no requirement to complete coursework but you must undertake frequent Controlled Assessment tasks in class time instead. Controlled Assessments form a high percentage of the final grade awarded and cannot be missed. For funding reasons this course is only open to learners aged 19 or over on 31st August 2013. Learners dates of birth must therefore be on or before 31st August 1994.
