O’level English Language – 2016 Papers

August 18, 2016

Here you can download June 2016 Past Papers, Mark Schemes, Grade Thresholds and Examiner Report.

The Inserts for Reading Papers have not been uploaded by CIE yet. I have prepared the inserts for Reading Papers myself. These Inserts contain all the answers except some ‘own words questions’ and words/meaning questions, reason being the changes made by the examiners to the original text of the novel from where the passages were taken. The formatting is not completely as per the CIE, however, the Inserts contain all the paragraphs required for solving the reading for meaning section and the words have been highlighted for the words/meaning question for your convenience. If CIE makes the Inserts available later on, I will surely update them here.

Changes to O’level English 1123 Paper Pattern

December 15, 2015

The paper pattern of O’level English 1123 Syllabus will change from 2018.

There are minor changes in the format of Directed & Creative Writing tasks in the Writing paper, but the tasks remain essentially the same. Creative Writing topics will be given genre wise, i.e. descriptive, narrative and argumentative topics will be explicitly categorised.

The reading paper has major changes in terms of format and marks. Note-taking task in the summary section will be of 12 marks now and paragraph summary task will be of 10 marks, instead of 5. The comprehension section will have a multiple choice Words Meaning Question, to the relief of many students, I believe. A question requiring meaning and effect analysis of given phrases from the text has been added.

Please find the specimen papers for the revised paper format below.
