It’s never too early to get ready for your final assessment. In fact, it’s important that you learn to develop your examination technique, including answering questions effectively, eradicating careless errors, and using the correct terminology. We’ve got WACE English past papers from 2016 onwards to help you develop your exam technique. Depending on when the syllabus was last updated, not all past exam papers will reflect the requirements of the most up to date syllabus.
We’ve organised the past papers by course and year, naming the links as accurately as possible. If you find any errors, please let us know.
The table usually shows each question and the criteria with each mark or mark range. Marking guides also contain sample answers.
3 Tips to Help you Prepare for Your WACE English Exam
- Get familiar with the syllabus. Pay particular attention to the bullet points that form the examinable content. All exam questions come from this content. Ensure you understand each term, the phrasing of certain points, and the various aspects of each concept in the syllabus.
- Practise, practise, practise. Write sample responses and sample short answers and take them to your teacher for feedback. Complete past exam papers and make sure you could do every type of question asked.
- Avoid memorising compositions that you have previously written. It’s unlikely you will ever be asked the exact same question in an exam. Develop your understanding of texts as a whole so you can engage with the question asked.
3 Tips to Help you Ace Your WACE English Exam
- Answer the question asked. Read, analyse and think about each question carefully. Make sure that you have answered the question asked not just reproduced what you know.
- Don’t just quote without explanation. Use your own words to present your personal contribution. Relevant quotes and text examples require supporting comments and explanation. Use examples and quotations strategically, which means analysing quotes and explaining them in detail using literary terminology, in order to develop your argument.
- Make your handwriting legible. The quality of your handwriting in a written examination is vitally important. Overly slanted writing, very fine pens, crossing out, highlighting and arrows to parts of the answer booklet make it difficult to mark your answer.
