This guide is for the first unit of AS English Language and Literature AQA A, Integrated Analysis and Text Production.

This unit requires students to study two (from a choice of ten) prose and drama texts, and to produce one response to each in the exam: one analytical and one productive.

It is an open book exam, in which students are allowed to take un-annotated texts into the exam room, and they may choose from which text they produce each kind of response.

Assessment

‘A’ questions for this unit (analytical responses) are assessed using AO1 and AO2 (15 marks each).

AO1

Select and apply relevant concepts and approaches from integrated linguistic and literary study, using appropriate terminology and accurate, coherent written expression

AO2

Demonstrate detailed critical understanding in analyzing ways in which structure, form and language shape meanings in a range of spoken and written texts.

‘B’ questions for this unit (creative responses) are assessed using AO4 (30 marks) and AO1 (15 marks).

AO1

Select and apply relevant concepts and approaches from integrated linguistic and literary study, using appropriate terminology and accurate, coherent written expression

AO4

Demonstrate expertise and creativity in using language appropriately for a variety of purposes and audiences, drawing on insights from linguistic and literary studies.

Set Texts

Students must write on two texts. All the set texts for this paper are prose or drama (as they are for ELLA2 also).

It is possible for students to study only prose or only drama at AS – there is no requirement to cover a range of genres or periods for Lang-Lit, as there is for Literature (this is the reason that traditional English degree courses tend to prefer Lit to Lang-Lit).

Possible texts are as follows:

Property by Valerie Martin

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams

The History Boys by Alan Bennett

The following texts will end...
