What is the Advanced Information
The main aim is to help you use your revision time effectively. In the case of English Language, you will see that the advice consists of a narrowing down of the possibilities for Paper 1 Section A, where the Text A genre will be a news article and the Text B genre the opening chapter of a cookbook, and for Paper 2 Section B, where the Text A genre will be an opinion article and the Text B genre will feature two opposing sides of an argument. AQA give no further advice beyond that.
This may not make a lot of practical difference to your studies but you might find time, for instance, to study a variety of newspapers or cookbooks and see how you would apply your skills and analytical techniques to different examples.
Study the Whole Course
Remember that every topic on the specification may be relevant to the answer of some question. Our general advice is to complete all lessons but to keep this list of ‘genres’ close to hand during the revision process and make sure you are particularly well prepared to answer questions on those genres.
- If a topic is not on the list, it does not mean you can ignore it
- complete all lessons and Tutor Marked Assignments
- Use the Advanced Information to tailor your revision
AQA may issue updated information or additional guidance at any point. Please check the subject page for English Language regularly.
