Writing the answers on the wrong NCEA exam paper.


NCEA students usually undergo two or three NCEA exams at the same time. In other words, they sit at their allocated table with two or three exam papers in front of them. Suddenly, they feel overwhelmed and mix up the NCEA exam papers. E.g., Mistake the Oral and Visual Genre study English NCEA exam paper with the Written text study English NCEA exam paper. In Drama, it happens with the NCEA Drama Theatre Form exam paper and the NCEA Drama Live Performance exam paper, also.



How can our NCEA tutor teacher(s) help prevent this?


In our NCEA English tutorials, we practice the process of undergoing the NCEA English exams. We look at the two papers, to make sure our NCEA students know the difference between the two or three NCEA exam papers, and then I get my NCEA students to tell me which one is which.

They will know the answer(s) because during our NCEA English tutorials we focus on knowing what the keywords are that they will look out for. These are the keywords that determine which NCEA English exam is which, and what each specific NCEA term means. E.g., oral means voice/speech, film means movie, written text means story. Repeating this every lesson/NCEA tutorial should ensure the NCEA student will know the answer on the day of their NCEA exam(s).
