Year 9 Exam

7 Jun

Dear Year 9s,

Here is the exam paper you will have to answer next week.  Read it carefully so that you are sure about what you need to do.

Remember that the exam has two sections: Section A, The Reading Task and Section B, The Writing Task.  Each section is worth 20 marks, so you must divide your time equally between them.

You may prepare one side of notes for each section and take those notes into the exam with you.  More information will be provided in class, so listen carefully.
