Grade 12 learners around the country wrote English Home Language Paper 2 today. The Teacher spoke to Lorraine Swift at Despatch High School in the Easetern Cape to get her opinion on the examination paper.
“On the whole it seems a pretty fair paper, although there were some learners who complained about the poetry section,” said Swift, who is the head of English at the school.
“It was different to the exemplars, but I think that gave the learners an idea of what sort of questions to expect and it covered all levels of aptitude.”
Swift said the majority of her learners found the paper easier than the September exam set by the department, while others found it more challenging.
