In Year 12, the examination will focus on child language acquisition and variations of language in different texts. One question asks you to analyse two texts separately and then compare these. The texts are linked by topic or theme but are from different time periods. 

The examination in Year 13 focuses on language diversity (across regions and groups) and language change over time.

The coursework folder includes an individual language investigation of 2,000 words, and a piece of original writing, along with a commentary (totally 1,500 words for both).
