That would depend on what ones you were doing on your actual course.

Well, if you're studying a GCSE or something similar, that course should have some texts or something that they have already set for you to study for the qualification? I'm sorry, if that's incorrect then I'm not sure what you're asking for.

I did GCSE English at college 2013/2014. I think it all depends on the examination board which texts you will study. My examination board was AQA and we studied 3 international short stories, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and poetry from the First World War. There was also some creative writing tasks and writing to describe or persuade. I'm pretty sure that the texts and poetry will change each year so you might have to just wait and see. What I would do, to prepare, is to search online for past exam papers, just so you have an idea what to expect. I hope this helps,

OP; this is what I was on about. Your course should have specific set texts and you'd be advised to read them first beforehand. Extensive reading is helpful but not very necessary at GCSE to be honest as in exams, you shouldn't compare texts.

Good luck!

I did hear that from September, the curriculum is changing in that English at GCSE level will be mainly exam. I've just done mine and my course was made up of 5 assignments.
1st one was a comparison between 3 short stories,
2nd one was a persuasive task about my favourite TV show,
3rd was an analytical task based around Benvolio, a character in Romeo and Juliet,
4th was a descriptive piece about a great time in my life and
5th was a comparison between 2 poems from the First World War.

The Exam was made up 4 questions talking about and comparing three different forms of writing and 2 questions based around creative writing.

Thank you very much Emma..That was really helpful.
I was searching for books and some the titles of the books are AQA GCSE. Could you please tell me what does it mean.
Thank you very much.
