Enrichment Practice for SPM 1119 Directed Writing: Report
There are still SPM candidates who fail to score a full mark for format and content points. Some of them are simply careless despite repeated reminders and the examination tips given by the teachers. In this write-up I would like to share the Directed Writing question tested in the recent school-based examination. A model answer is offered. Moreover, comments on weaknesses are also given, together with suggestions on how they can be improved. No doubt, your SPM candidates and mine could be different groups of learners, however, I am positive some of my candidates' weaknesses are common to you too.
