Changes to Level Two Exam Papers – Reminder!

I know that your teachers have drummed this into you but this post is a reminder about the changes to the layout of questions in the Level Two NCEA exam. The layout has changed in three L2 English standards:

90377 Analyse extended written text(s)

90378 Analyse short written texts

90379 Analyse a visual or oral text.

The change has come about to help students choose questions suited to the text types they have studied, there will be some questions in these papers that specify the type of text to be used in answers. Like any exam read the questions carefully and choose wisely!

Here are more details:

90377 Analyse extended written text(s)

As in previous years, you will be required to answer on ONE topic using an extended written text (the book!) that you have studied. There will be six topics that can be used for ANY extended written text.  There will be two additional topics that can be used only for a non-fiction text. No one has studied non-fiction this year!

90378 Analyse short written texts

As in previous years you will be required to answer on ONE topic using two or more short written texts that  you have studied. There will be four general topics for ANY text types, two topics for short stories and two topics for poetry .

90379 Analyse a visual or oral text

As in previous years you will be required to answer ONE question using a visual or oral text that you have studied. There will be six questions that can be used ONLY for any visual text. There will be four questions that can be used ONLY for oral text. No one studied an oral text!
