    You will read a number of books. You need to understand them to be able to write a few essays/ have an opinion. Normally a novel, Shakespeare and some poetry.

    Not word for word, but you do need to know whats gone on otherwise what have you been doing for 2 years? It snt hard and you will be fine if you like History or English. If you like stories or have an opinion even better.
