Pre-IGCSE English Literature

  • Course level: English Literature


Our pre-IGCSE English Literature modules are focused on creating effective foundations for MYP & IGCSE Programmes by promoting various skills including thinking, communication and research skills.

1:1 and Group Classes

We teach a hybrid model of solo and regular timetabled group classes (currently online). We assess the individual needs of every student and, partnering with parents, mutually decide on an appropriate course of study for the student. Our general recommendation is that students start their learning in a group class and once core theory has been understood, group sessions can be complemented with solo classes to consolidate learning and address any specific concerns.

Paper Marking

We also offer paper marking services for this course. Having your practice papers marked will help give you a clear idea of where and how to improve. Please click here to know more.

Student Reviews

UWCSEA Dover, Grade 9 Student

Young scholarz has helped me to gain a deeper insight to the English language, I am very grateful for the new learning experiences.

Parent of UWCSEA Dover, Grade 9 student

My son has made good progress since attending Ms Sunita’s classes. He finds the lessons comprehensible and is able to grasp the concepts as explained by Ms Sunita. Lessons are well-paced and the workshops during the holidays were very useful.

UWCSEA Dover, Grade 8 student

Young scholarz’s teaching has helped me look at the little details that shape and improve my work. It has also taught me how to use the basic rules and skills to develop my work and the teacher has helped enhance my knowledge and understanding of the topics.
