Component 1 requires students to study a selection of poems from 'Poems of the Decade: An Anthology of the Forward Book of Poetry 2002-2011'. 

Students must also study aspects of the form of drama via one play. Students not only need to understand the play but the significance and influence of contextual factors. Students must also engage with different interpretations of the play.

During the next few months you will enter Unit 2 by writing a 2000 word explorative study of Othello and The Winter's Tale by Shakespeare and a 'Creative Critical Response' of 500 words.

You will need to work hard and look at every single word you write. It is possible to get full marks - but it takes time and effort.

Good luck. :)
