Upcoming English O level papers...!!!

Hi guys,

Lets discuss about the upcoming english papers..!!! One of the very few most important papers coming up..

Am sure some might be uncertain of some specfic areas.

Any seniors/teachers/anyone that is able to share some immediate tips and help would greatly benefit many here!

Having said that, anyone have tips for answering those vocab questions? Would giving a phrase tend to be harder to explain the meaning of the word compared to a single word that has the same meaning?

This thread was created meant for us to share any new/helpful/urgent tips that is needed to be send across.


Thanks!!!!

Re: Upcoming English O level papers...!!!

Sometimes giving a phrase is easier. To answer vocab questions, make sure you specify the degree of the word. For example, fatigue vs exhausted. Both essentially are describing conditions of being tired but the degree of tiredness is different. That is where people usually lose marks.

Re: Upcoming English O level papers...!!!

sorry I can'r offer any tips, but ie got a question.
I'm very bad at writing compo because I simply cannot write a interesting story. Any suggestions on what kind of compo should I write? Should I stick with the descriptive essay or do a argumentative essay?

Do what you're used to. Changing style at the last minute might just make you panic.

If you do descriptive you got to remember to describe every point vividly. Make use of the five senses to enhance your story and ensure that your reader gets a very clear picture of what is going on.

Re: Upcoming English O level papers...!!!

I am going to memorise essays. If I can, I will want to fit in the essays on the 2 main ideas that I'm about to memorise into any topic that will come out tomorrow. The 2 ideas are rivalry and cheating. I find these 2 easier to twist into any situations. Any model essays for these 2 ideas? Help is very much appreciated

Paper 2 was slightly challenging... Summary is quite hard, as there is a lot of misleading information and content you need to take note of... The word limit makes it even harder... I over-condensed it from 250+ to 150... It hurts a lot.
