Question 2

Since the introduction of video films into your country, there has been a rise in juvenile delinquency.  Write an article suitable for publication in a national newspaper on the need for Government to regulate the importation of these films.



This is a newspaper article in which the candidate is to discuss “the need for government to regulate the importation of video films.”  The question made it clear that there has been a rise in “juvenile delinquency” in the candidate’s country since the introduction of these films.  One vital aspect of the task is for the candidate to state clearly why the importation should be regulated.  Secondly, the candidate is expected to show that he understands the expression “juvenile delinquency’ and that the rise in this deviant behaviour stemmed from watching these films.

Most of the candidates who wrote on this topic failed to handle these vital aspects satisfactorily.
