Studying English language can involve exploring almost any use of words. You will have the opportunity to study the ways English language is used in a variety of forms, such as casual spoken conversations and advertising material, texts and tweets, and legal and medical discourse.
You will not just be looking at language on the page but language in use, in particular contexts, by speakers with motives, expectations and cultural knowledge.
Studying English Literature helps to sharpen your analytical skills. If you can take a text and find the themes plus connect it with other texts, theories, and historical events, you are showing that you can handle complex ideas, search for patterns and interpret information in a wider context.
You will also develop your planning and research skills as well as gain knowledge of history, culture, philosophy and even human behaviour.
Most universities and employers will want you to have a grade C in English and maths at GCSE, so, in 2013, the government announced that all students in England must now achieve this (or level 2 functional skills) and keep on studying the subjects until they do.
Studying maths helps us find patterns and structure in our lives. Maths helps us put a price on things, create games, build structures, put satellites in space and generally understand how things work or predict how they might change under different conditions.
Biologists are scientists who study the natural world and all the living things in it. They try to understand how animals and organisms work, how we evolved and the things that can make us sick or improve our health.
Biologists use this knowledge to stop the spread of diseases, track down natural resources, improve public health, animal care and conservation and work out the true impacts of things like pollution.
