How the Unit is Assessed

J352/01 Exploring modern and literary heritage texts

Assessment Overview: 50% of GCSE

  • 80 marks
  • 2 hours written paper

Content Overview:

For this component, learners study one modern prose or drama text and one C19th novel. The focus is on learners engaging with their reading through exploring key themes, ideas and issues, characterisation and settings in order to build confidence in their skills of critical evaluation. Study of a modern text is enhanced through comparative study with unseen modern prose.

  • maintain a critical style and develop an informed personal response
  • use textual references, including quotations, to support and illustrate interpretations.

  • AO3: Show understanding of the relationships between texts and the contexts in which they were written.
