Attention: TQA Co-ordinator and All Teachers of English - Studies - Senior Secondary 5C


The office of the Authority would like to thank all teachers who provided feedback about the sample examination paper.

Following receipt of the issues raised by teachers, it has been decided that the following changes will be made to the structure of the end of year examination paper (for this year).

Section A:

The question on the paired text study will require students to consider the texts in relation to each other. It will not be appropriate to write about each text completely separately.

Students will be required to answer in essay form for this section.

Section B:

Students will be able to answer any ONE of the questions in Section B, the Applied section of the exam, without necessarily referring to a core text. They may choose only to discuss texts they studied in the Application.

As in the sample, different questions will require answers in different forms. This reflects the demands of the syllabus that students are able to compose texts in a range of forms.
