Selective School/Scholarships - Grade 7 - Narrative Writing


There are a number of primary school scholarship tests involving written components. The ACER test is usually Test 3: Writing (2 x short extended response, 40 minutes). For the NSW selective schools test the writing test has been described here 'There is also a writing task which is 20 minutes in duration and is marked by trained markers using pre-determined criteria. Two pages are provided for the writing task. The writing stimulus may be an image, a statement, a heading or a question to which students have to respond in writing. The writing will be judged on the quality of the thinking about the topic, the organisation of ideas and the control of language demonstrated in developing the piece of writing.

Students must produce writing that is their own original work. Generally, NO marks will be awarded for writing that does not specifically address the stimulus. Marks will also NOT be awarded where the writing of students is discovered to have elements in common with writing of other students or published works. Selection committees have the discretion to deduct some or all of the writing marks if they believe students have produced work memorised beforehand and adapted to respond to the stimulus'.
