Edexcel English Language, Lit, Unseen Media watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm really confused as to what's going on with the exams.

    On my timetable it says:
    - English - The Craft of The Writer is on May 16th
    - English - Media Unseen on May 18th
    - English Literature on May 24th

    From the above information, am I right in thinking 'Craft of The Writer' is English Language??

    And we've been studying Anthology, Of Mice and Men and Chinese Cinderella so which of these do I take to which exams??

    Sorry if there's another thread on this, I'm blinded by my confusion + anxiety
    and people tell me different things so I have no idea!

    Of Mice And Men is Literature


    craft of the writer - poetry, one of the writing triplets (Explain, inform, describe), and non-fiction.

    Media Unseen - you will be given a peice of text with a picture and you will need to write about it, for example, you will wirte about the purpose, audience, layout; language. You will also need to do the other two writing triplets (argue, persuade, advise) and (analyse, review, comment). You should be give 135 minutes for this exam. (i think)

    Literature - Of mice and men and the other novel you are doing.

    Hope this helps. Good luck
