Eduqas A level English Literature update


Changes to our Eduqas A level English Literature specification Component 1 poetry requirements - for first assessment in 2019

Following feedback from teachers, we have decided to specify the poems for study for Donne, Keats and Rossetti in Component 1 Section A part (i) of the GCE A level English Literature assessment.  This change has been approved by Ofqual for first assessment from summer 2019 (i.e. first teaching September 2017). The poems for study are listed in the revised specification here. 

Rhodri Jones, Subject Officer:
"The specified poems have been carefully selected to be strongly representative of each poet's body of work whilst offering a sufficient range to give candidates a well-developed understanding. The change will allow teachers greater focus for their teaching, whilst still drawing on a wide-ranging selection of poems."

Please note, this ONLY applies to our Eduqas specification,
