The GSCE is a requirement for individuals who have aspirations to advance to the GSCE A-Level. A student can choose up to twelve subjects from more than forty-five to study and be tested on although this preparation course focuses only on the English language test. The pupil can take the A-Level versions of the courses they if they pass that course on the GSCE exam with a score of a letter grade of “C” or higher. The exam is comprised of four sections: Reading Comprehension, Reading Critically, Writing and Speaking. The Speaking portion is the only section that is unscored.
The Reading Comprehension requires the test taker to read a wide variety of texts extracted from books of literature and other higher quality materials. The student will have to search for main ideas and themes in at least two passages. Additionally, they will have to comprehend, interpret and summarize given texts, and assess the applicability of given information.
In the Critical Reading section, the student will be evaluated on their ability to read critically, evaluate and comprehend works of literature and their overall knowledge of English vocabulary and grammar. The test taker will have to analyze and describe a writer’s comments, support evaluated passages with descriptive examples and compare and contrast certain texts in this portion of the exam.
The Writing portion does not evaluate the pupil’s ability to compose lengthy written works; rather it assesses their ability to compose high-caliber, quality written works. The test taker will be tested on how clear and coherent they can convey their message, their usage of grammar, and whether or not they used the correct style and vocabulary. Additionally, students will need to compose different types of writings with specific objectives to inform, argue, instruct, or persuade certain audiences.
The Speaking portion of this exam evaluates the test taker’s comprehension of spoken English and their ability to speak English correctly. They will be required to present information in a formal setting, listen attentively for understanding and respond when prompted.
