Areas of focus: : Pls see Homework Page

  • Emphasis on on topic sentences/big picture concept/ideas and statements: because this is the biggest area of weakness among year 12 students. Many were not that competent at standing back from a text and seeing the concepts as analytically and as flexibly as possible.  Those who can, will get a good mark.
  • Polished sentences:  Also, many were losing grammatical control of their sentences – and this loss, will also undermine a good mark in English.
