Exam Preparation: 1.1 Extended Written Texts

You should attempt the sample paper and then have a look at the excellence exemplar and answer rubric to evaluate your response. You are most welcome to give your practice papers to me to assess as well.

The Extended Written Texts paper asks you to write an essay in response to a play or novel you have read this year. You may choose between Macbeth and Lord of the Flies as your source text or this – though I would encourage you to prepare and consider Macbeth as your preferred option.

“Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.” (Katherine Mansfield)
