Question 2

Read the following text. Then, answer questions (a) – (j).

The best moment in my life was when I saw Muffet for the first time. It was a

few months ago when Ahmad handed me the hamster. I was so excited to hold Muffet

in my hands. Ahmad could no longer take care of it because he had to go overseas with

his family.

Hamsters are mostly brown but Muffet has grey fur all over its body. For a

1-year-old, Muffet is quite chubby. It has grown from three inches long, when I first

took it, to eight inches long in just six months! It is normally energetic at night and it

spends most of its day sleeping.

Muffet lacks interest in playing with toys or climbing ropes. Whenever I put some

toys in the cage, it will chew them up and make a mess out of it. So, I bought Muffet a

wheel. Riding the wheel is something it enjoys besides running through colourful tubes

in its cage.

Hamsters are naturally very clean and tidy animals. I often see Muffet grooming

itself by licking its fur. Sometimes I would help Muffet by trimming its nail using small

nail clippers. When it is time to eat, I usually serve seeds, nuts, vegetables and fruits in

its bowl. Above all, it prefers fruits the most. Muffet is definitely the best pet for me and

I love it so much!

Question 4

Read the text below.

A VISIT TO A TURTLE SANCTUARY

As part of the Environment Week programme, four teachers and 20 students from my class went for a visit to a turtle sanctuary. This visit was organised to create awareness on turtle conservation. We reached our destination at six oclock in the evening. Upon arrival, we headed straight for the beach to witness the beautiful sunset. Mr Siva, the officer-in-charge, greeted us and brought us to the hall for a briefing. We were supposed to spend our nights in the tents but because of the strong wind, we decided to stay in the dormitory. The next morning, we went to the turtle hatchery. Mr Siva explained how turtle eggs are collected from their nests and then incubated there . Once the eggs hatch, the hatchlings are released into the sea. It is usually done after dusk to increase their chances of survival. According to Mr Siva, the biggest threat to turtles is the illegal hunters. They steal turtle eggs and later sell them for instant cash. This endangers the turtle population. That evening, we were given the opportunity to release the baby turtles on the beach. As the baby turtles wriggled in our hands, we placed them down gently. As soon as their legs touched the sands, they instinctively crawled towards the water. It was a wonderful experience and we took some photographs of that moment for our school magazine. Later that night, we eagerly waited in the dark for turtles to land at the beach. We were told that in average, four turtles would come to the beach every night during the nesting season. After hours of waiting, one turtle showed up eventually. This visit was indeed an eye-opening experience. We cannot wait to join more activities like this in the near future.

Mark Scheme for Section D [40 marks]

Assessment Objectives

This part assesses student’s ability to:

write a letter based on the given notes using correct and appropriate language.

add more information, opinions and elaborate ideas.

write using coherent and cohesive structures to convey meaning effectively.

write an appropriate response based on a novel that they have read.

A.

How writing is assessed

In the assessment of writing skills at the lower secondary school level, students are assessed on their ability to demonstrate the following skills in their written responses:

• reading skills in understanding the rubric and fulfilling the requirements of the writing task.

• thinking skills to reflect depth and maturity of thinking by giving ideas, reasons and supporting them with appropriate elaborations.

• language skills in terms of using language appropriately to provide the correct tone, form and content as required by the task.

The emphasis is on how well the response fulfils the set task and the level of language used. Accuracy of language in terms of grammar, sentence structures and mechanics of writing is essential for effective communication. The examiner must be able to understand and follow the presentation of ideas or events conveyed in the students’ responses. Creativity is important but should not be the sole criterion in the assessment of writing.

B.

What is expected of a student

A student must at least be able to:

• identify the requirements of the task.

• provide the appropriate content according to the task specified.

• use an appropriate format.

• give evidence / reasons to support given response (novel).

• use correct grammar, sentence structures and mechanics of writing.

• use paragraphs to organise ideas.

• elaborate and develop ideas e.g. by adding details, giving reasons or examples to make responses more interesting.

TERHAD

C General instructions to examiners for marking Section D

1. Mark based on a 5-band impression scale with marks ranging from 1 – 30 (Question 6) and 1 – 10 (Question 7).

2. Read the response provided for relevance to task and assessment objectives specified for the question.

3. Indicate merit and demerit expressions.

4. Check whether response fulfils the criteria specified in a given band.

5. Look for details which make the writing more interesting. Responses which are generally free from serious errors should be placed in the upper bands. However, responses with frequent serious and minor errors should be placed in the lower bands.

6. Read the response again to confirm or change bands.

7. If there is a change in band, read the response again to check the general criteria specified in the new band selected.

Note:

Award ‘0’ mark when there is:

- no response or response written in language other than English; or

- mindless lifting of irrelevant chunks from other sources including rubric.

When awarding marks, apply the ‘best fit’ principle. No script will fit neatly into any one of the bands. To determine the appropriate mark, identify the band the response belongs to and refer to the criteria in the band. Examiners should assess the script holistically and always refer to the coordinated scripts for consistency.

• The length of the response should not be a criterion in awarding marks. Award marks based on the quality and relevance of the response.
