[ 25 marks ] [ Time suggested : 50 minutes] Read the passage below and answer the questions that follow. 1 Don disappeared into the thin line of palms above the beach. Everyone waited in excited silence. Salleh knew that conditions had to be just right for the giant turtles to make their way on land. To actually find one just about to lay her eggs was more than he had hoped for. The last thing they wanted to do was scare her off. Giant green turtles are not so plentiful.

Turtles are very timid and easily frightened, especially when laying their eggs. The last thing they wanted was to scare her off. Giant green turtles are not so very plentiful. They fall prey to lots of natural predators, from birds and sand crabs which search out the buried eggs and feast on the newly hatched young as they scurry towards the sea, to larger, more sinister attackers beneath the waves. Salleh thought 10 again of the young turtle with only three flippers. That one was lucky. A shark attack is usually more final. And then there is man. Turtles eggs, turtle soup and turtle shell jewellery are available in thousands of shops and restaurants. Salleh sighed. When would people ever learn? Don returned as quickly and quietly as he had left. Right everybody. We can 15 go up now. Dont get too close and keep quiet. Follow me. Salleh was close behind Don as they neared the trees. He heard the turtle before he saw her. The sound of the turtles very slow and cavernous breathing reached his ears. It seemed to come from far away and reminded him of someone with bronchial lungs, filled with water and labouring to gain enough oxygen. 20 Following Dons tracks they moved in closer. Salleh could hear the sound of soft sand falling on leaves like raindrops, and then he saw her dark outline half-buried in the sand. Don turned on his torch. Salleh was amazed by what he saw and stifled a gasp. Even after his underwater encounter the other day he marvelled at her size. She 25 was at least two metres long. As Salleh touched her shell, the turtle moved forward a little, her powerful front flippers having managed to find a grip in the soft sand. Everyone crowded round when they saw why she had moved. Eggs! Dozens of eggs! They looked like a collection of oversized tennis balls and just as delicate. A camera 30 flashed several times but luckily it did not seem to disturb her.

They all watched spellbound for a long time as the turtle struggled to cover her eggs. Her breathing become more laboured as her instincts to protect her eggs drove her to work furiously to cover them as quickly as possible. Salleh thought ruefully that she looked near to exhaustion. She would have to labour for several hours until her work was done and then 35 drag her heavy shell back to the protecting waters. Eventually at Dons request, everyone reluctantly left her alone. Salleh took a last look at her wizened and wrinkled face, ugly yet beautiful. Her large eyes were like pools of water, deep and serene.

Are you still playing your flute? When there is hardly time for our love I am feeling guilty To be longing for your song The melody concealed in the slim hollow of the bamboo Uncovered by the breath of an artist Composed by his fingers Blown by the wind To the depth of my heart. Are you still playing the flute? In the village so quiet and deserted Amidst the sick rice field While here it has become a luxury To spend the time watching the rain Gazing at the evening rays Collecting dew drops Or enjoying the fragrance of flowers. Are you still playing your flute? The more it disturbs my conscience to be thinking of you in the hazard of you my younger brothers unemployed and desperate my people disunited by politics my friend slaughtered mercilessly this world is too old and bleeding Zurinah Hassan

CRITERIA FOR MARKING LANGUAGE Question 1 : Directed Writing

DESCRIPTORS MARK RANGE

DESCRIPTION OF CRITERIA

A 19 20

-The language is entirely accurate apart from very occasional first draft slips. -Sentence structure is varied and shows that the candidate is able to use various types of sentences to achieve a particular effect. -Vocabulary is wide and is used with precision. -Punctuation is accurate and helpful to the reader. -Spelling is accurate across the full range of vocabulary used. -Paragraphs are well-planned, have unity and are linked. -The style and tone is appropriate for a report.

B 16 - 18

-The language is almost always accurate; occasional errors are either minor or first draft slips. -Vocabulary is wide enough to convey intended shades of meaning with some precision. -Sentences show some variation of length and type, including some complex sentences. -Punctuation is almost always accurate and generally helpful. -Spelling is nearly always accurate. -Paragraphs show some evidence of planning, have unity and are usually appropriately linked. -The style and tone is appropriate for a report.

C 13 - 15

-The language is largely accurate. -Simple structures are used without error; mistakes may occur when more sophisticated structures are attempted. -Vocabulary is adequate to convey intended meaning but may not be sufficiently developed to achieve precision. -Sentences may show some variety of structure and length but there is a tendency to use one type of structure, giving it a monotonous effect. Punctuation of simple structures is accurate on the whole but errors may occur in more complex uses. Spelling is generally accurate for common vocabulary. The composition is written in paragraphs which may show some unity, although links may be absent or inappropriate. -The style and tone is mostly appropriate.
4

PREPARED BY : MUHAMMAD BILAL BIN KHAIRUDDIN

D 10 - 12

-The language is sufficiently accurate to communicate meaning clearly to the reader. -There will be patches of clear language, particularly when simple vocabulary and structures are used. -There is some variety of sentence type and length but the purpose is not clearly seen. -Punctuation is generally correct but does not clarify meaning. -Vocabulary is usually adequate to show intended meaning but this is not developed to show precision. -Simple words will be spelt correctly but more spelling errors will occur. -Paragraphs are used but show lack of planning and unity. -The style and tone are unlikely to be appropriate for a report.

E 7-9

-Meaning is never in doubt, but single word errors are sufficiently frequent and serious to hamper reading. -Some simple structures may be accurate, but a script at this level is unlikely to sustain accuracy for long. -Vocabulary is limited either too simple to convey precise meaning or more ambitious but imperfectly understood. -Simple words will be spelt correctly but frequent mistakes in spelling and punctuation make reading the script difficult. -Paragraphs lack unity or are haphazardly arranged. The high incidence of linguistic errors is likely to distract the reader from any merits of content that the composition may have. There may be errors of sentence separation and punctuation. -The style and tone may be inappropriate for a report to the Principal.

U (i) 4-6

-Meaning is fairly clear but high incidence of error throughout the writing will definitely impede the reading. -A script at this level will have few accurate structures. There will be many serious errors of various kinds throughout the script but they are mainly of the single word type, i.e. they could be corrected without rewriting the whole sentence. Although communication is established, the frequent errors may cause blurring. -Vocabulary may not extend beyond a simple range of words that are inadequate to express shades of meaning -Sentences will be simple and very often repetitive. -Punctuation will sometimes be used correctly but sentence separation errors may occur.

PREPARED BY : MUHAMMAD BILAL BIN KHAIRUDDIN

-Paragraphs lack unity or there may not be any paragraphs at all. -There may be frequent spelling errors. -The style and tone may not be appropriate for a report or, if it is, may not show understanding of the detailed requirements of the task.

U(ii) 2-3

The reader is able to get some sense out of the script but errors are multiple in nature, requiring the reader to re-read and re-organise before being able to understand. At this level, there may be only a few accurate but simple sentences. The content may be comprehensible, but the incidence of linguistic error is so high as to make meaning blur. This type of script may also be far short of the required number of words. Whole sections of the article may make little or no sense. There are unlikely to be more than one or two accurate sentences. The content is comprehensible, but its style and tone is hidden by the density of errors

U(iii) 0-1

Scripts in this category are mostly entirely impossible to read. Whole sections of the article may make little or no sense at all or are copied from the task. Where occasional patches of clarity occur, marks should be awarded. Award 1 mark if some sense can be obtained. The mark 0 should only be awarded if the letter makes no sense at all from beginning to end.

PREPARED BY : MUHAMMAD BILAL BIN KHAIRUDDIN

SECTION B : MARKING SCHEME FOR CONTINUOUS WRITING


1) The candidates response will be assessed based on impression. 2) The examiner shall read and re-read the response carefully and at the same time underline for gross or minor errors or put in insertion marks (^) where such errors occur. 3) The examiner should also mark for good vocabulary or expressions by putting a merit tick at the end of such merits. 4) The examiner shall fit the candidates response against the most appropriate band having most of the criteria as found in the band. The examiner may have to refer to upper or lower bands to the band already chosen to BEST FIT the students response to the most appropriate band. The marks from the band decided on for the script also depend on the number of criteria that are found in the script. 5) Justify the band and marks given, if necessary, by commenting on the strengths and weaknesses of the candidates response, using the criteria found in the band.
