English Paper-1
- Most of the students feel difficult to write English exams. But it is very easy for all the students to get success in the new evaluation system CCE. The students need to use their knowledge of language, rather than memorizing the answers and the rules.

- Let us make an attempt to know what to read and how to read for the English exam in this preparation plan.

- It is known to all of us that there are TWO papers with 40 marks each and each papers consists of THREE sections i.e., Reading Comprehension (15 marks), Grammar and Vocabulary (10 marks) and Creative Writing (15 marks).

- The following is the pattern of the Paper -1.
- Reading Comprehension:
In this section, two passages are given from the text book. The students need to read the passage carefully to answer the given multiple choice and very short answer questions.
- The first passage is given from any Reading-A of the Textbook. The length of the passage is of around 150-200 words. Four multiple choice questions (4 marks) and Three short answer questions (6 marks) are given.

- The second passage is given from any Reading-B and C of the Textbook. The length of this passage is of 100-150 words. Three multiple choice questions (3 marks) and two very short answer type questions (2 marks) are given.

Tips to score good marks:
- Read all the texts of the TB critically and frequently.
- Very close options are given in MCQs. So, one should be very careful while choosing the correct one.
- Generally capital A, B, C and D are used with the options. The students must write their option using capital letters only.

- Grammar and Vocabulary:
In this section, the questions test the knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. Three passages from Reading A, B & C of the textbook are given.
- In the first passage, five questions are given for editing. Each question will have an error in it. After locating the errors in those five sentences, the students need to correct the errors and rewrite the sentences in the booklet. The errors will be generally from the following topics:

- Error in Articles, prepositions and pronoun
- Error in subject verb agreement, conditionals, time clauses, tenses and to + infinitive form
- Error in conjunctions, relative pronouns and relative adverbs
- Excess words
- Errors in the usage of adjectives and adverbs
- Errors in the forms of words
- Error in word order

- In the second passage, the students need to complete the passage choosing the right word from the given list. The list includes the content words like Nouns, Adjectives, Principal Verbs, Adverbs are given. (Structural words like Pronouns, Conjunctions and Prepositions, auxiliary verbs are not included.) Five questions are asked and each question carries a half mark.

- In the third passage, you need to rewrite the underlined words as directed. The question in this part are generally:
- Writing the correct form of the word
- Replacing the word with its right form.
- Supplying the synonym or antonyms
- Replace the word with a suitable one.
- To score good marks in this section, all the reading texts should be read critically focusing on the usage above mentioned grammar topics and also the usage vocabulary in context.

- Creative Writing (Discourses): This is the very decisive and crucial part of the paper. You need to focus on this section if you really aspire to score 10/10.
- In this section, two questions are asked. You need to write one major discourse and one minor discourse.

- There is an internal choice in the 28th question i.e., writing a major discourse. The following discourses are asked in this paper:
-Story/ narrative;
-Drama script/ Play;
-Interview and

- Both the questions will be framed based on the theme of the Reading A, B & C of the textbook. So, you need to have a complete knowledge of all the themes of the textbook.
- Every question is framed in such a way that it consists of Concept, Task and Input in the form of ideas. Make use of this information and write the major discourses.

- To score good marks in this part, focus on the following points:
- First you should have the knowledge of all the indicators of discourses.
- Follow the discourse specific features like sequencing the ideas, using discourse markers, expressing emotions, presenting relevant ideas, using language appropriate to the context etc.

- Focus on the language specific features like Error free sentences, correct use of conventions of writing, use of correct connectors or relative pronouns etc.
- The information that you provide should be relevant to the context.
- Layout should be properly designed.
- Do not include irrelevant ideas.
- Begin the discourse on a fresh page of your booklet.
- Give suitable heading.

- You need to write a minor discourse in the 29th question. The minor discourses include:
