The Higher-Level Geography Paper was balanced and well received. The sections were very topical, fair, and accessible to all students. The short questions had a wide variety of topics, the section was very manageable. Yearly favourites were present such as the Earth’s Structure and Landform Identification.
English Paper 2 was another fair, engaging and highly accessible paper for all abilities. The questions on the Single Text were even-handed and clearly phrased, providing great scope for students to demonstrate their personal engagement with the text.
The higher-level home economics paper touched on a number of topical issues. It offered students a great variety of choices in the questions offered, especially with the amendments to the paper this year. The short questions served as a nice introduction to the paper and were very approachable overall with a variety of topics that should cater for all students.
