Students will need to study at least one poetry text, a genre that is not available at AS Level. Learners are also required to choose one text from List A, and another text either from List A or one text from List B.


Important Notice

We are not approved to assess, or moderate coursework. This means it is the student’s responsibility to access AQA consortium advice through their examination centre. 

It is the choice of the learner which two text they select to study, and also the comparative question they wish to work on.

We can provide students with the necessary learning materials for unit 4. This includes several examples of poetry criticism analysis, and also tutor marked assignments. This will assist students when it comes to preparing and drafting coursework. 

To achieve a full A – Level, students are required to successfully complete assignments and examinations from both AS and A2 level.
