Edexcel AS and A level English Literature (2015)
Here, you'll find everything you need to prepare for the changes to Edexcel AS and A level English Literature from 2015 (first assessment 2016 and 2017).
Prescribed list for Poems of the Decade amended
We have been listening to your feedback during first teaching of our Edexcel AS and A level in English Literature.
To further support your students with the in-depth study and analysis of required poems, we've revised the list of prescribed texts from 'Poems of a Decade: An Anthology of the Forward Books of Poetry, 2002-2011'.
For first AS and A level assessment in summer 2018, eight poems have been removed from the prescribed list:
- Eavan Boland - 'Inheritance'
- Sue Boyle - 'A Leisure Centre is also a Temple of Learning'
- Ciaran Carson - 'The War Correspondent'
- Carol Ann Duffy - 'The Map Woman'
- Robert Minhinnick - 'The Fox in the National Museum of Wales'
- Sean O’Brien - 'Fantasia on a Theme of James Wright'
- Ruth Padel - 'You, Shiva, and my Mum'
- George Szirtes -'Song'
Full details of the amendment and updated Appendix 5 for A level English Literature can be found in this letter.
