The Language and Literature syllabus has two aims: to encourage an appreciation of literature in English - prose, poetry and drama - of different types and from different cultures; and to develop the key skills required to read, analyse and communicate effectively in English.
By studying a range of texts, learners understand more about writers' choices of structure and language, and develop their ability to form independent opinions about what they read. Learners also improve their understanding of the English language and how it is used, extending their skills across a range of writing styles, including imaginative, discursive and argumentative.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
