English Literature ENL315114

  • I also note that changes have been made to English Literature ENL315114 through the Version History in the online TASC course document regarding ‘Clarification of use of texts from Modules Two and Three on examination.’ You may wish to familiarise yourself with these changes as the changes may influence your teaching plan for the year.
