GCSE, Level 2

GCSE English Language

GCSE English Language (Resit)

A resit programme has been developed to improve your school GCSE English grades. The qualification will give you more confidence in your own abilities, boost your CV to show employers what you can do and give you a basis to move onto other qualifications.

The course consists of a variety of texts and series of work packs to help with developing revision skills to prepare you for the summer exams. In preparation for these exams you will familiarise yourself with various different genres of writing that you will be expected to analyse. You will also need to be cognisant with subject terminology and writing techniques as tools to use in that analysis, as well as able to produce a variety of texts in the personal writing elements of the papers.

If it has been a while since you took your GCSEs (or O Levels) you may find you will have to do quite a bit of reading outside of class time.

  • Learners may use the qualification to help progress onto further education opportunities such as higher education.
  • Improve your employment prospects.

You must have a good grounding in basic English, or an ESOL Level 2 qualification.

All attendees are required to provide photographic identification.

Two written exam papers that will be taken in the summer (June) at Selby College.
