Developed in consultation with teachers and professional organisations, our Edexcel A level English specifications support teachers in new approaches to the teaching and study of English, while valuing best practice. The English Language specification builds on the skills, knowledge and understanding established at GCSE and allows teachers the flexibility to meet differing student interests and needs. The themes are presented as questions and issues to explore.
The English Language e-Spec combines the specification, SAMs and other materials in an easy-to-use interactive electronic package. View the e-SpecDownload the e-Spec to your PCDownload the e-Spec to your Mac
