Like any other examination or certification, GCSE requires a great amount of effort and time for profound preparation. There are dozens of courses that provide classes, necessary material and assistance in whatever subject your choose, but they are quite costly. Even online lessons of GCSE training start at £285 – the sum that doesn’t sound affordable at all.
But if you are ready to dedicate some time to planning and counting, we have a good, much cheaper (or even free) option for you – online courses from main knowledge providers on the Internet. You could say that they are irrelevant to GCSE, but you can change that by creating your own individual plan. It’s quite easy to do:
- Look at the syllabus of a specialized GCSE course – they usually describe in detail which topics will be covered on each lesson.
- Find free courses that cover those topics.
- Plan the learning time to make it till certification and arrange lessons for yourself to closely follow the schedule.
How accurate the evaluation of someone’s critical thinking can be? There are loads of debates swirling around the ability to critically analyse the surroundings and the above mentioned question because the phenomenon is so abstract and individual that not a lot of educational institutions venture into assessing this skill … except for the ones in the UK.
What is GCSE Critical Thinking?
GCSE is a certification system that was implemented back in 1988 and overtook other assessment ways. And in 2009 it expanded up to critical thinking. There are 2 types of qualifications you can get by passing GCSE:
- Advanced Subsidiary GCE (introduction to critical thinking, basic concepts and principles of analysis)
- Advanced GCE (deeper understanding of critical analysis and evaluation, ability to form fully-featured arguments)
Wondering what the fuss around GCSE 2015 changes is all about? Sit comfortably and prepare to read an article as we’re going to explain all the new features for you. Why do you need to take the trouble at all? Well, if you are a student planning to pass GCSE English, pay attention because these changes will have a great effect on both exam process and grading (in case you worry about your results).
1. New Grading System
The most notable change is transfer from A-C marks to 1-9 points with 1 being the lowest, and 9 – the highest. Moreover, the Department of Education limited the number of people who can get the best card to 20% of those who receive 7 and higher. So, if you counted on the top score, you’ll have to press harder.
What does it mean for you? Nobody can predict the exact results, but the teachers are worried that the students will get worse grades because of the variation (for example, you could do fine and receive a C while, right now, your “fine” will be also graded as “worse fine” (4) or “better fine” (5).
If you think (and secretly hope) that reading some novels and poems will be enough to pass the test on IGCSE or GCSE equivalent qualifications in English literature, we have to disappoint you – no, it won’t. This certificate proves that you are a holder of a certain number of skills applicable not only in the sphere of English literature but in everyday life. Let’s find out what those skills are and what they mean.
So, to be fully prepared for the IGCSE or GCSE in English literature, you need to be able to:
