Cambridge CAIE English Literature IGCSE – Specification 0992

Cambridge IGCSE Literature in English is a fascinating programme for students to read, interpret and evaluate texts through the study of literature in English.   You will develop an understanding of literal meaning, relevant contexts and of the deeper themes or attitudes that may be expressed.

Through your participation in this course, you will learn to recognise and appreciate the ways in which writers use English to achieve a range of effects, and you will be able to present an informed, and personal response to the material.   The qualification also encourages the exploration of wider and universal issues, promoting a better understanding of ourselves and of the world around us.

Texts covered in the course are: Poetry Anthology, Rebecca, Twelfth Night, and Journey’s End.

This course includes most of the necessary materials, with the exception of the official texts.

This course has 2 or 3 exam papers, depending on the approach you wish to take:  Paper 1(1.5hrs) and Paper 2(1.5hrs)  … or … Paper 1(1.5hrs) and Paper 3(45mins) and Paper 4(1.25hrs).  The exam board link is here 

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