Level 2 English
Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Wright
Our NCEA Level 2 English course develops skills in crafted writing and close reading and viewing, with a particular focus on critical analysis. Successful completion of this course will contribute to University Entrance Literacy requirements. The Writing Portfolio achievement standard provides the required UE Literacy writing credits. 10 credits are offered internally and students will choose between two of the three external standards on offer, which are worth 4 credits each. In special circumstances a student might attempt all three external papers. Students may also opt into the English Scholarship programme, which involves additional tutorials throughout the year and a separate exam, that will most likely take place at the end of Year 13.
Standards completed will be selected from those listed below.
