Practice makes perfect

Dear Senior 4,

As I have already anticipated in class, I hereby attach the marking scheme corresponding to the last paper 2 we worked on. To be more exact, it’s the May/June 2012 0500/22 exam containing two passages around the topic of detectives.

Make sure you print enough copies so that the whole class has access to this material as we’ll be using it on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd.. Remember it is not necessary to print a copy each.

We’ll focus, particularly, on question 2 (linguistic expressions and their effect). Nonetheless, you’re more than welcome to peep into the other questions so as to have a broader view of what you’re expected to do in the exam

See you soon!
