In June 2022, we announced improvements to the diversity of texts in our AS and A Level Level English Language and Literature (H074/H474) specification for first teach September 2023, with AS Level first assessment in June 2024 and A Level first assessment in June 2025.
We want to remind you we've replaced two of the least studied texts for both poetry and drama in component 02 with some new texts.
We've outlined the changes below:
We've now amended our specifications to reflect these changes, see below:
You can also view and download the amended specifications from the AS and A Level English Language and Literature qualification pages on our website, and from Teach Cambridge.
Please make sure you're using the correct version of the specification with your students.
You can read more about these changes in our English blog and on our AS and A Level English Language and Literature qualification page. To learn more about our wider work on diversity in English, see our website.
