AQA LTA1 AS Level Literature: The Modern Novel

Legacy Specification: until 2009

These are editions of the set texts for Unit 1 of the AQA AS Level Specification A English Literature course. The last examination for this course will take place in 2009, which will be final resit opportunity; candidates beginning courses in September 2008 should use the new Specification, which has its first AS papers in 2009.

Candidates study one novel; this is a closed text paper so copies of the novels are not allowed in the examination room.

Remember that it is essential to check from the AQA specification that you are reading the right text and edition for the right year! There were changes in set texts in 2006 - please check the AQA website yourself to be sure you have prepared the correct texts.
