From June 2011, Cambridge University will conduct O’ level English Examination according to the new paper pattern, announced 02 years ago.
Major changes have been made to the Reading Paper, as there will be separate passages for Reading Comprehension and Summary Writing from June 2011 onwards. Summary Writing Task has also gone under a drastic change.
The changes in the Writing Paper are minor ones, such as the word limit for Composition Writing Task has been reduced from 350-600 to 350-500 and now Composition Writing and Directed Writing tasks are of equal marks, i.e. 30 each.
