About AS Level English Language and Literature 7706 Syllabus
Specifications designed for you and your students
We have worked closely with teachers and universities to develop accessible and stimulating courses in which students engage creatively and independently with a variety of spoken, written and multi-modal texts.
Designed with a focus on the integration of language and literature, these specifications enable students to see how linguistic and literary methods are related and to explore these links in their work.
Offering clear skills progression from GCSE, these courses allow students to build on the skills and knowledge already gained and prepare for their next steps.
The variety of assessment styles used, such as re-creative writing, commentary writing, discursive essays and research-based investigative writing, allows students to develop a wide range of skills. These include the ability to read critically, analyse, evaluate and undertake independent research, which are invaluable for both further study and future employment.
Choice and flexibility
Our specification offers a range of engaging texts with options to suit all preferences, so you can choose the texts that will be most appealing and of most interest to your students. We do not expect to change texts within the first five years of the specification. However, texts will be reviewed each year starting in September 2017 and we will give at least 9 months’ notice of any changes prior to first teaching of a two year course. The criteria for changing texts will be where a text becomes unavailable or where we can no longer use it in a question paper. This applies to all texts set for study in this specification. Notice of any change will be communicated via our examination bulletins and aqa.org.uk/7706
Teach AS and A-level together
Both AS and A-level courses provide strong stand-alone qualifications that are fully co-teachable so that you can choose the approach that best suits your, and your students’, needs.
The A-level non-exam assessment component reinforces the integrated nature of the specification whilst also providing opportunities for students to pursue their own areas of interest and develop personal and independent learning skills.
We support you every step of the way
These specifications feature an anthology of multi-modal texts from different genres linked by themes, which provides a valuable interactive digital resource to support teaching.
To further support teaching and learning, we provide a comprehensive range of resources, including a digital resource bank and access to the largest network of English teachers facilitated through our national Subject advocate network.

Support and resources to help you teach
We know that support and resources are vital for your teaching and that you have limited time to find or develop good quality materials. So we’ve worked with experienced teachers to provide you with a range of resources that will help you confidently plan, teach and prepare for exams.
