Welcome from Merinda Bermingham


Literature is the ideal stepping stone for students looking to further their literary experiences. Explore a diverse range of challenging texts from around the world and across eras.

Unit focus areas

Literature Unit 3 – Form and transformation

Literature Unit 4 – Interpreting texts


It is intended that most students will study Literature in conjunction with mainstream English Units 3 and 4 to ensure that they not only get the most out of their literary experience but also give themselves the best opportunity to maximise their VCE English results.

Students undertaking Units 3 and 4 Literature need to have completed Units 1 and 2 English or Literature.


For Units 3 and 4, students complete School-Assessed Coursework (50%) subject to external moderation, and an end-of-year examination (50%).
