New Spec GCSE Level 8 and 9 Tips/ Advice/ Resources for English

    I'm looking into gathering different schools' and teachers' ideas as to what a Level 8 or 9 (i.e. the new A*) will require or look like for English Language and English Literature 2017 students (in particular with AQA).

    Obviously, with the government changes there are no example answers anymore, other than sister-sites of exam boards, such as e-AQA, exampro, and Cambridge Elevate.

    I'm looking for any advice that teachers can share, based on their own experiences, department practice and how you have found transitioning from the old spec to the new one.

    What skills are you developing in your KS4 students and how are you pushing high-achievers or highly-targeted students?
