Self-Taught A Literature

Senior school > Curriculum > Self-Taught A Literature

The IB School supported Self-Taught A Literature is an additional option we may be able to offer to candidates who feel their strongest language (A Language) is their native language and who would like to explore the concepts of an A Literature course through literature in their native language. This applies to candidates where we do not offer a taught course in this particular language, but will support their learning through a well-coordinated, guided self-study.

Pupils’ knowledge and understanding will be tested in two exam papers at the end of the course – Paper 1 deals with an unseen text, and Paper 2 requires the comparison of two works from the reading list. There is also an oral component, this consists of a presentation the candidate will prepare
in advance.
