All the key knowledge and key skills that underpin the outcomes in Units 3 and 4 are examinable.
The duration of the exam is three hours.
A dictionary is permitted for use during the exam, but not a thesaurus.
Assessment will be based on comprehension of unfamiliar spoken texts. Two audio texts will be set.
Assessment will be based on an analytical essay to one of three texts studied for Unit 3 and Unit 4 Outcome 1 — only the EAL prescribed text from List 2 of the VCAA text list will be set for the exam, in our case, Stasiland. So, an essay on either Much Ado About Nothing, Rear Window or Stasiland.
Assessment will be based on an analysis of how argument and persuasive language are used in one or more print and visual texts to persuade others to agree with the point(s) of view expressed. There are two questions to complete: a series of short answer questions and a written analysis.
