Level 3 English
Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Wright
Level 3 English develops critical and analytical thinking skills around a range of written and visual texts. Students are assessed through both internal and external achievement standards. 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.
A student should have a minimum of 14 credits from Level 2 English, including Achievement Standard 91101 (writing portfolio) and at least 4 credits from the external exam. Alternatively, entry may be granted at the discretion of the Head of Faculty.
