What is GCSE English Language?

 

GCSE English language is designed on the basis that students should read and be assessed on high-quality, challenging texts from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Each text studied must represent a substantial piece of writing, making significant demands on students in terms of content, structure and the quality of language.

 

The texts, across a range of genres and types, should support students in developing their own writing by providing effective models.

 

The texts must include literature and extended literary non-fiction, and other writing such as essays, reviews and journalism (both printed and online).

 

Texts that are essentially transient, such as instant news feeds, must not be included. The number and types of texts, and their length, are not prescribed.

 

Assessment objectives

 

 READING (50%):

 

 Read and understand a range of texts to:


  • Identify and interpret explicit and implicit information and ideas

  • Select and synthesise evidence from different texts

  • Explain, comment on and analyse how writers use language and structure to achieve effects and influence readers, using relevant subject terminology to support their views

  • Compare writers’ ideas and perspectives, as well as how these are conveyed, across two or more texts

  • Evaluate texts critically and support this with appropriate textual references

 

WRITING (50%)


  • Communicate clearly, effectively and imaginatively, selecting and adapting tone, style and register for different forms, purposes and audiences

  • Organise information and ideas, using structural and grammatical features to support coherence and cohesion of texts

  • Candidates must use a range of vocabulary and sentence structures for clarity, purpose and effect, with accurate spelling and punctuation. (This requirement must constitute 20% of the marks for each specification as a whole.)

 

SPOKEN LANGUAGE (Unweighted)


  • Demonstrate presentation skills in a formal setting

  • Listen and respond appropriately to spoken language, including to questions and feedback to presentations
