    That depends on your exam board and specification (which will be different from previous years).
    I thought they'd got rid of coursework completely? The new Eng Lit students in my college don't get it, so count yourself lucky

    Your coursework will be pretty varied, dependent on the specification you are under. However, regardless of spec, your coursework will equate to 3000 words and is worth 20% of your full A-level qualification. There will also be a requirement for you to write a comparative piece.

    For better understanding of what are your specified requirements, I suggest consulting your teacher or finding out what exam board you are with, via your school's website and finding out online.
