NABS

  • NABs (National Assessment Bank tasks) are exam tasks which test and check that you’re ready to sit the final exams.

  • These are pass/fail assessed – you will not get a grade for your NABs.

  • If you fail a NAB, you will get another chance to resit them.

  • Close Reading - this is similar to the final Close Reading paper you will sit in May.

  • Textual Analysis – where you read an unseen poem or other form of fiction and answer questions on the techniques used.

  • Writing– you will write either an argumentative, creative or discursive essay on a topic of you choosing (you are allowed to take notes into the exam.)
