Pathway

Level 2 English

This course is unlikely to offer University Entrance literacy credits. Completion of this course does not allow for Level 3 English entry but it could lead to English Level 2, if the student wishes to gain further credits in English. A differentiated learning programme will be developed around the students' needs and interests.​

Entry Guidelines

Students should consider this course as their Level 2 English option if they found Level 1 English challenging, particularly the writing standards and external assessments. This course is also designed for students who may have missed out on internal credits at Level 1, or who were in Level 1 Applied English the previous year.
