Paper 3: Poetry and Prose

In this paper you answer on one poetry text from Section A and one prose text from section B, with a choice of three texts in each section. There are two alternatives on each text, one an essay question and the other passage -based question. you have one hour for each answer, two hours for the paper as a whole. your answers should ideally be between 600-800 words.

Paper 4: Drama

As in Paper 3 you answer two questions once again, this time on two plays, with six to choose from. the alternatives are, similarly, either an essay or a passage-based question, to be answered in two hours.


About Ms. N's Rhyme and Reason

Hi, In the beginning was the word. Hence begins the history of humankind, in all domains of evolution. The thriving of civilizations has depended on how articulate were their teachers- the ones who descended with the learned art to their offspring generations. This phenomenon of transmitting of genetic code of learning has been at the heart of my inspiration to teach. This art somehow has transformed into a mantra for me, and it has never ceased to amaze me. Although to become a perfect teacher one might take a lifetime, but if one tries to be perfect, one negates the reason to experiment and fail. Hence, I may have faltered in some of my approaches, but my aspiration has been to try rectifying the short-coming, to connect again with the subject-matter and my pupils, to demystify the intended outcome, to enthuse the learners again, and to keep the cycle going.
