What are the purposes of a GCSE in English Language and why might they come into conflict with one another?

Litteranguage Part 2

How well does the English Language GCSE asess performance relating to a proportion of the content of the National Curriculum for English at Key Stage 4?

Litteranguage Part 3

Litteranguage Part 4

How well does the GCSE in English Language demonstrate proficiency in English to potential employers and prepare students for higher study of linguistics.
