english A level help

I'm really confused about all the english A level assessments, can someone explain what each part of the assessment is assessing you on (eg, American literature asseses you heavily on context)
They have a set group of conditions you need to fulfill, these being:

AO1: Articulate informed, personal and creative responses to literary texts, using associated concepts and terminology, and coherent, accurate written expression.
AO2: Analyse ways in which meanings are shaped in literary texts.
AO3: Demonstrate understanding of the significance and influence of the contexts in which literary texts are written and received.
AO4: Explore connections across literary texts.
AO5: Explore literary texts informed by different interpretations.

These can vary depending on which exam you're taking though.
