Unseen Fiction Anthology

Students should read a variety of high-quality, challenging non-fiction texts, in preparation to respond to unseen non-fiction texts in the examination. They should be able to read substantial pieces of writing, including whole and extended texts that make significant demands in terms of content, structure and the quality of the language. Throughout the qualification, students should develop the skills of interpretation and analysis.

  • Text types studied should include a range of non-fiction forms, such as journalism (for example articles and reviews), speeches, journals and reference book extracts.
  • Text types should also include literary non-fiction texts, such as selections from autobiography, letters, obituaries and travel writing. These lists are not exhaustive.
  • Texts that are essentially transient, such as instant news feeds and advertisements, will not form part of the assessment.

The Pearson Edexcel International GCSE English Anthology is a resource that supports teachers by providing examples of different types of non-fiction text. Students are encouraged to read beyond the anthology to support their learning. This resource is designed to assist you to support that learning.
