CCEA’s GCSE English Language Specification meets the requirements of the Northern Ireland GCSE regulations and builds on the pupils’ experience of English at Key Stage 3.

The specification is compatible with CCEA’s GCSE English Literature specification. Work submitted for the Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening components may be based on texts studied for assessment in English Literature.
