How can I check the texts I choose for the coursework (Component 1) are suitable?

Examples of texts suitable for coursework (Component 1) can be found in section 4 of the syllabus: Details of the assessment.

Texts that have been used for Paper 3 in previous years are considered suitable for coursework. Teachers must ensure the text chosen is of similar demand and level to those on the set text list. Candidates who work with very short texts are unlikely to have enough material with which to adequately demonstrate their understanding, and therefore may struggle to access the upper bands of the mark scheme.

You must not use a text which is currently on the set text list for Paper 3 (see section 3 Subject content).
