The exam assesses students' ability to write sustained interpretations
by analysing how the literary features, in one or more passages
contribute to an interpretation of the text. The exam is 1
1/4hours in duration. Students complete two different sections
on the texts studied during the semester:
A plausible interpretation
of one poem through close analysis.
plausible interpretation of either the novel or the play through
close analysis of the language, imagery and ideas and its
relationship to the whole text.
