‘A’ Level Examinations in English Literature

  • S. H. Burton
Part of the Macmillan Work Out Series book series (MCWO)


Because each examining board has its own syllabus for ‘A’ level English Literature, candidates for the examinations of the various boards study different set books. The contents of the examination papers also vary from board to board. For example, whereas one board may set questions on the specified Shakespeare plays in Paper 1, another board may set its questions on Shakespeare in Paper 2, reserving its Paper 1 for questions on Chaucer and Milton. One board may combine questions involving critical commentary on passages from the set texts with context questions. Another board may set critical commentary questions in a separate paper.
