Similarly the exams will also be reflection of all the changes which are part of National Curriculum i.e. Competencies, Standards, Benchmarks and SLOs. Keeping this factor in mind it is strongly recommended to promote SLOs based teaching and learning.
  • There is a gradual shift from a generic mark scheme to specific one. Each question will also be dealt individually in terms of its marking. Marking schemes (see Rubrics) are part of these model papers as a guideline to let all the teachers and students alert about this change.
  • New concepts may have different levels of difficulty presenting a reflection of National Curriculum Prepare your students accordingly for examination.

Test Description of English

  • Encourage students to read additional reading material which may help them to enhance their knowledge and critical thinking skills. Ultimately this reading habit will lead them to improve their vocabulary and information ending up to creativity.
  • Design SLOs based monthly / weekly tests to promote creative writing and concept based learning. Subjective and objective parts of papers should be given equal importance.
