A2 Eng Lang is rather different to AS Eng Lang. At A2, the exam is split into two - one part on phonological aspects of language whilst the other on language change over time. The coursework consists of writing for a specific purpose, like travel writing, sports article, obituary, advertising campaign, etc... and also an investigation which you have to focus on a specific aspect that language influences, like power, gender, political correctness, age, dialect, etc... this is for the WJEC syllabus, but i would imagine that it's similar for all other exam boards with maybe a few minor changes.
