English Paper 2 May/June 2015

Question 5

    Write a story ending with the statement: We apologised to each other and made up.


This was not a popular question and many of those who attempted it ended up writing long and irrelevant stories which did not show that they understood the expression.  They just tagged on the expression at the end of their story. Also, many candidates muddled up the tenses in the course of the narration. Candidates should be taught that in storytelling, the tense used should be the past.
