Why is this course right for you?

Our uniquely flexible online English Language course means that even if you're working full-time or caring for family, you can fit learning around your busy life.

You don’t need any previous qualifications to take this course, but a C in GCSE English Language is recommended.

If English is your second language, we recommend you have an IELTS 5.5 or equivalent, but we’re happy to review your case on an individual basis.

Roughly 6 months before your chosen exam date, you should arrange your place at an exam centre to take the AQA English Language A Level syllabus (7702) exam.

Exam centres are usually schools or colleges that are also submitting their own students for the exam.

AQA publish a list of exam centres that may accept private candidates. This won’t cover every available centre, so if there’s nothing shown in your area, we recommend contacting local schools and colleges directly.

Once you've found an exam centre, you'll apply for entry through us, as we'll be the ‘entering’ centre in terms of marking and authenticating your coursework.

Your exam fees aren’t included in the course cost as they’re paid directly to the exam centre. They’ll vary depending on which centre you choose.

If you’d like to pay in full, you can enrol online using the ‘Add to Basket’ button at the top of the page.

If you’d like to set up an interest-free payment plan, get in touch with our A Level Advisors on 0800 015 3326.

If you have any disabilities which you think might affect your studies or assessments, please tell your Course Advisor before you enrol so we can advise you on whether reasonable adjustments can be made to accommodate your needs.
