If you gained a D at IGCSE English or Language you will have the opportunity to retake those exams in either November or June of Year 12. You could also attempt the Level 2 Functional Skills English course which is similar to GCSE but which has no written controlled assessments.
How is the course structured and graded?
You will be entered for the appropriate papers as and when we feel you will be most likely to pass them. This might be as early as November of Year 12 or as late as June of Year 13. The aim is to equip you with all the reading and writing skills you need to obtain a Level 2 qualification in English before you leave Bredon School.
Will this course be suitable for me?
If you almost gained a C grade in Year 11 then you stand a good chance of moving up to Level 2 with a bit more practice. If you gained an E or lower then it is unlikely you will be able to make this leap and should focus on improving your literacy skills through your ASDAN work.
What could this course lead to?
Many Level 3 courses and jobs require applicants to have a Level 2 English qualification, so this course is essential if you narrowly missed grade C first time around.
