16+ English Language and Literature
16+ English Language and Literature is sat by students wishing to enter the sixth form of an independent school. Most often students will sit exams in their desired A Level subjects, so usually between three and five subjects. The 16+ exams generally require a good understanding of the subjects’ GCSE syllabi but as the schools are testing for potential, candidates will be pushed and be given questions where their knowledge is stretched.
The GCE A Level in English Language and Literature requires students to use integrated linguistic and literary approaches to reading and interpreting texts, and engage creatively and independently with a wide range of spoken, written and multimodal texts. In addition students will explore the relationships between texts and undertake independent and sustained studies to develop their skills as producers and interpreters of language.
A tutor working through Osborne Cawkwell can prepare a student for the 16+ entrance exams, as well as provide support once the student has started their new school.
