Which A-level Lit Spec to Choose?!

    For the old spec we were with AQA A (Struggle for Modern Identity) but left as teachers were sick of AQA.

    The new spec we're currently with is OCR but we have been left unfulfilled and the teachers and myself are ready to go back to the drawing board.

    It will either be Edexcel (Supernatural as we did The Gothic with OCR or Colonisation) or AQA A (ironic lol) Shared Contexts.

    If anyone has taught Edexcel and AQA A this year, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    Edexcel seems fine. Sensible, and with lots of choice, which is why we chose it. All ok so far.

    Would be interested to know what you find unfulfilling about OCR, as we nearly went with this.
