Year 12 English and Media

12ENGM
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs S. Franck

This course combines English and Media Studies. It gives students the potential to gain 4 reading and 4 writing credits towards the 5 reading and writing credits required for University Entrance. If students take Level 2 Drama, there are several standards where they can gain the extra credit needed in each. (Geography, History and Economics also have UE literacy standards). 

The course contains one external standard so would suit students who find external exams challenging and who prefer internal standards.  Students can opt to take an extra external standard which would then give them the extra reading and writing credits for UE literacy.
