AS Level
Unit 1: Categorising Texts (Exam)
Section A:
This section uses a generic question designed to test candidates’ ability to explore the ways in which varieties of data can be grouped using the knowledge they have gained during their studies. The following list of possible ‘groupings’ should form the basis of their preparation for this task:

• audience
• genre
• formality
• speech
• writing
• multimodality
• representation
• linguistic areas (e.g. lexis, grammar, phonetics /
phonology etc).

Students are given 5-7 texts to group and discuss the reasons for their groupings. WORTH 48 marks

Section B:
Students answer one question from a choice of three. Each question in Section B will be paired with a new text.

There will be one question from each of the prescribed topic areas:

Language and Power
Language and Gender
Language and Technology

60% of AS, 30% of A Level
2 hour written examination

Unit 2: Creating Texts (coursework)

Students produce two pieces of writing in different
genres and for different audiences and purposes.

They then reflect on their linguistic choices in an accompanying
for each piece of writing; in this they discuss how their choices were affected by purpose/audience/context (2500-3500 words total)

The following are examples of types of writing which candidates might choose to submit:

• Writing to entertain- a soap opera script; an extract from an autobiography; a dramatic monologue
• Writing to persuade-an editorial; a letter to a head of centre about uniform issues; a speech delivered as a football captain
• Writing to inform- a piece of travel journalism; a leaflet focusing on a health issues; an extract from a motorbike maintenance manual
• Writing to advise/Instruct- a leaflet focusing on ‘How to choose a University’; a guide to texting for novices; an article advising on ‘How to survive a music festival’
