ABQ units (1, 2 and 3)
In this revision course we will be covering the following units:
Unit 1- People in business
Unit 2 – Enterprise
Unit 3 – Management
Students will be given notes for each of these units along with sample answers included within the notes provided. We also practise past ABQ questions and go through strategies students can use in relation to exam technique and timing.
Essay – Personal, Speech, Article and Short Story
Prescribed Poetry – Hopkins, Dickinson, Ní Chuilleanáin
In Paper One, we will focus on Section 1, Comprehension, Question A. Students will learn how to structure their answers, the importance of addressing the question, and how personal response and development are imperative in order to attain maximum marks.
Additionally, we will explore Section 2, Composing. This section is worth 50% of Paper 1, while it is worth 25% of your entire grade. This section ultimately determines your grade. Students will learn the importance of selecting the correct question, whilst also learning how to select a question that suits their style of writing. Again, we will review structure – this is crucial when looking at the marking scheme and where marks are awarded. Sample answers will be provided so students are aware of what it takes to secure a H1 grade.
Unseen Poetry is worth 20m. Although students often view this section as insignificant, it can often be the section that determines a grade, i.e. it can be the difference between a H1 and a H2. Students will learn how to approach this section with confidence and learn how to secure a H1!
In relation to Prescribed Poetry, students will be provided with in-depth analysis of the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins, Emily Dickinson, and Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin. Students will learn how to structure their answer and learn how to utilise language that will guide them towards a H1.
