Teaching & learning
The Cambridge International AS Level General Paper encourages learners to develop a maturity of critical thought and argument, and a mastery of expression in the English language. These are all skills of great use for university level study.
The syllabus draws on topics from across the school curriculum, and learners are able to draw upon knowledge and understanding gained from study of other subjects.
This syllabus will be replaced by the updated syllabus Cambridge International AS Level English General Paper (8021) for first examination in 2019.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
There are no updates for this syllabus
