Transcript of Cambridge iGCSE: Paper 2

Cambridge iGCSE: Paper 2
English Language

What can you remember?
In your table groups recap everything you remember about this paper from what you covered last year.

I will challenge one of you to summarise everything in 60 seconds.
What do the examiners say?
To achieve a Grade A, a candidate will be able to:
• understand and communicate information at both a straightforward and a complex level.
• understand facts, ideas and opinions, and order and present in detail what is relevant for specific purposes.
• describe and reflect upon experience and detail, analysing effectively what is felt and what is imagined.
• recognise implicit meanings and attitudes of a writer.
• show a clear sense of audience and an understanding of appropriate uses of language.
• write in well constructed paragraphs, using a full range of appropriate sentence structures, and show accuracy in spelling and punctuation.
• select and use appropriate spoken styles and registers. Candidates will vary their sentence structure, vocabulary and expression confidently for a range of purposes, sustaining discussion through the use of a variety of contributions, listening with sensitivity, and occasionally taking the initiative.

Question 2 : Author's Craft
This question is marked on your ability to identify unusual vocabulary/ lexis that has been used by the writer.

You will then need to explain what effect is created - what images are evoked by these word choices (connotations!)

....deja vu?
Key points we need to know!
This exam is 2 hours.

It consists of three questions. (50 marks in total)

You will be examined on your ability to infer information, summarise content and idenitfy language devices.
1. Summarise the above into a step by step guide.

2. Which specific area do you need to improve?
So what does this mean?
Question One: Text Transformation

You will be given time (10-15mins) to read the extracts in the paper. Question one asks you to 'transform' what you've read into another form.
How many forms can you think of?
Each table group will be allocated a form of writing.

You will then present to the class everything they would need to consider with that particular form:
Newspaper
Formal Report
Magazine Article
Formal Letter
Journal Entry
Interview
1. What structure would be used?
2. What type of language would be employed?
3. What could be included to show orginality?

In your journal entry you should:
• explain how you feel in this environment

Brainstorm what to include in your response..
(This will include both content, language and structure)
Using the given mark scheme, peer assess your partner's work providing a band and a mark.

You will also need to give them a WWW and an EBI.
Question 2
In your groups you have been given an example from a past paper.

Read and annotate the two sheets in as much detail as you can.


You have 25 minutes to answer this question.
Peer and Self Assessment.
Band 1: 9–10
Wide ranging discussion of language with some high quality comments that add meaning and associations to words in both parts of the question, and demonstrate the writer's reasons for using them. May give an overview of the paragraph’s combined effect. Tackles images with some precision and imagination. There is clear evidence that the candidate understands how language works.

Band 2: 7–8
Reference is made to a number of words and phrases, and some explanations are given and effects identified in both parts of the question. Images are recognised as such and the response goes some way to explain them. There is some evidence that the candidate understands how language works.

Band 3: 5–6
A satisfactory attempt is made to identify appropriate words and phrases. The response mostly gives meanings of words and any attempt to suggest and explain effects is basic or very general. One half of the question may be better answered than the other. The response may correctly identify linguistic devices but not explain why they are used.

Question 3 : Summary Question
In the language paper this is the third question. It requires you to read 2 different texts.

The question suggests that you write a full page in total – so half a page on each text.
