    understanding of the requirements for all the three questions. Some candidates were

    able to express ideas confidently, justify their reasons and construct creative and

    interesting sentences. A vast majority of the candidates were able to fulfil the tasks in

    the questions satisfactorily. On the other hand, due to poor command of the

    language, quite a number of them failed to answer correctly.

    GENERAL PERFORMANCE OF CANDIDATES ACCORDING TO THEIR GROUPS

    High Achievers

    Candidates in this group were able to do well in all the three sections of the paper.

    They were able to write grammatically correct sentences and express ideas

    creatively using simple, compound and complex sentences. They wrote confidently,

    reflecting their command of the language. Candidates in this group were able to use

    similes, proverbs and idioms relevant to the context. Their answers were able to

    sustain the interest of the reader.

    Average Achievers

    Candidates from this group were able to construct simple and compound sentences

    with occasional errors. Ideas were simple with not many adjectives, adverbs and

    appropriate verbs to support meaning. Errors made were due to the confusion in the

    use of vocabulary and grammar. Some candidates failed to understand the

    information and clues given. They misinterpreted the graphic given resulting in

    careless mistakes.

    Low Achievers

    The candidates in this group had a low level of proficiency in the language and thiscaused difficulties in answering all the questions. They were unable to fulfill the

    requirements of the questions. This was due to their inability to construct simple

    sentences to express ideas. The errors made were related to vocabulary, spelling,

    punctuation and grammar. Ideas presented were either disorganised or showed
