G12 English A : Curriculum for October 2017 term 1 exams

Dear parents,

Students will attempt two papers, paper 1 and paper 2. Paper 1 is based on language – parts 1 and 2 and paper 2 on literature – part 3.

Paper 1 : Students are instructed to write an analysis of one of the texts (HL : one of the set of texts), including comments on the significance of any possible contexts, audience, purpose and the use of linguistic and literary devices. The texts for analysis are not necessarily related to specific parts of the syllabus. Different non-literary text types are included, for example:

  • advertisement
  • opinion column
  • extract from an essay
  • electronic text (such as social networking sites, blogs)
  • brochure (such as a public information leaflet)
  • extract from a memoir, diary or other autobiographical text (HL only).
Students are required to analyse and comment on the text in the light of their understanding of its possible audience and purpose. In order to achieve this, students need to analyse structure, language and style in addition to aspects such as text type, context, bias and/or ideological position.

The assessment criteria for Paper 1 are:

  • Criterion A : Understanding of the text
  • Criterion B:  Understanding of the use and effects of stylistic features
  • Criterion C : Organization and development
  • Criterion D : Language

Each criterion weighs 5 points and hence the total is 20.

Paper 2: Students will attempt an answer based on the texts for one of the six questions.
  • Tamas by Bhisham Sahni
  • A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
  • Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe (HL only)

The assessment criteria for Paper 2 are:

  • Criterion A : Knowledge and Understanding
  • Criterion B:  Response to question
  • Criterion C : Understanding of the use and effects of stylistic features
  • Criterion D : Organization and development
  • Criterion E : Language

Each criterion weighs 5 points and hence the total is 25.

There are no internal assessments and each paper will carry 50% weighting.
