Edexcel English Literature IGCSE – Specification 4ET1

Edexcel IGCSE English Literature is the perfect course for students looking to engage with and develop the ability to read, understand and respond to a wide range of literary texts from around the world.

You will develop an appreciation of the ways in which writers achieve their literary effects and develop the skills needed for literary study.   This is a fascinating opportunity to explore, through literature, the cultures of your own and other societies and to find enjoyment in reading literature and understanding its influence on individuals and societies. The texts that are studied for the course are: Romeo and Juliet, Of Mice and Men, and An Inspector Calls.

(We also have a range of short courses that support early preparation for IGCSE English before you start the IGCSE, and short courses that support specific exam preparation and skills for self-study-ers; there is more information here.)
