Four questions will be set, all of which will be
Question 1: Candidates will be required to write a
composition from a choice of subjects which will test
their ability to: organise, describe, narrate, report,
explain, persuade or argue, present ideas coherently,
compare and contrast ideas and arrive at conclusions,
present relevant arguments and use correct style and
format. The subjects will be varied and may be
suggested by language or by other stimuli such as
pictures. The subjects will be so chosen so as to allow
the candidates to draw on first-hand experience or to
stimulate their imagination.
With one subject, a number of suggestions about the
content of the composition will be given, but the use of
the suggestions will be optional and a candidate will be
free to treat the subject in any way that he/she chooses.
The organisation of subject matter, syntax, punctuation,
correctness of grammatical constructions and spelling
will be expected to be appropriate to the mode of
treatment required by the subject.
Question 2: Candidates will have to write a letter from
a choice of two subjects requiring either a formal or an
informal mode of treatment. Suggestions regarding the
content of the letter may be given. The layout of
the letter with address, introduction, conclusion, etc.,
will form part of the assessment. Candidates will be
expected to be familiar with the use of appropriate
salutation, format and style for letters.
Question 3: An unseen passage of prose of about 500
words will be given. Uncommon items of vocabulary,
or structure will be avoided. One question will be set to
test vocabulary. Candidates will be required to show
that they understand the words/phrases in the context in
which they have been used. A number of questions
requiring short answers will also be asked on the
passage. These questions will test the candidates’
ability to understand the explicit content and
organisation of the passage and to infer information,
intentions and attitudes from it.
The last question will consist of a summary that will
test the candidates’ ability to distinguish main ideas
from supporting details and to extract salient points to
re-express them in the form of a summary. Candidates
will be given clear indications of what they are to
summarise and of the length of the summary.
Question 4: There will be a number of short answer
questions to test the candidates' knowledge of
functional grammar, structure and usage of the
language. All the items in this question will be

multiple choice or other short answer type of questions.
