How to Pass HKDSE English with Flying Colours Paper 3 Skills 6輯。(This entry is a rewritten version of my previous post Eight Tips for Paper 3 Writing Tasks.) 

1.          Your answers MUST correspond to what you are being asked to do. Read the instructions carefully. Identify keys requirements. Circle or underline key words. Refer to such key words when you write lest you should miss any key requirements. (文要對題。小心審題。要寫的重點從來不止一個。將key words圈出或間底線。找資料和作答時「睇返」,幸福是沒有寫漏重點。) 


2.          Catch the logic behind the question so that you can copy/sort out/arrange/rewrite the points in a logical order. (要明白題目設問背後的道理/「故事」。起初,看題目。不明白嗎?再看Data File,會明白更多。要善用考評局讓你familiarize yourself with the Data File那幾分鐘。看透題目要你做哪幾件事,打腹稿。要如何明白題旨?可看我寫的HKDSE Paper 3 Skills (7) – Tackle extended writing tasks (1)》http://englishwizard.mysinablog.com/index.php?op=ViewArticle&articleId=3116274或許可當作一個例子。) 


3.          Develop an outline in your mind, and drop down some key points regarding what to write. (打腹稿:確定題目要求的重點後,要確定表達各點的先後次序,以及在每個重點上要掛搭哪幾項資料。可以簡單地用keyword寫下各點,不是起稿,而是用一些單詞提示自己要寫哪些內容,單詞旁邊可加123等數字,提醒自己鋪陳內容的次序。) 


4.          Decide the genre/format/tone required. (決定文體/格式/語氣,例如friendly的,formal的。) 


5.          Exclude irrelevant material. Don’t copy (sentences or chunks of information) indiscriminately. (不盲抄。不濫抄。「盲抄」指大量抄進無關的資料,老實:「寧廢勿漏」是錯的!「濫抄」指抄的資料有關,但因為整句整段的抄,不加修改,抄進了無關的部分。老實:有些字句可抄,有些必須改寫。要懂抄也懂改) 


6.          Mind your spelling, e.g. shopping and NOT shoping; flat and NOT falt; restaurant and NOT resturant; Causeway Bay and NOT Causway Bay. (明啦!這些要讀的,你根本唔識就點小心都無用。) 


7.          Mind your grammar, e.g. consistent pronouns, correct tenses, e.g. 1 Neither idea had any point to them/it; e.g. 2 Neither the chairman nor the managers admit he was/she was/they were aware of the fraudulent practices; e.g. 3 I was/am born in Hong Kong.


8.          Be careful of capitalization of the first letter of a proper name, e.g. the University of Hong Kong and NOT the university of Hong Kong; Kowloon Bay and NOT Kowloon bay.


9.          Write a good opening and ending. Pay attention to proper paragraphing. (平時對各種文體的開頭句子不妨多讀多記,好的開始是成功的一半。平時對結尾的技巧也要留意。試場一分鐘,場外三年功!還要正確分段,通常每段應該寫三至五句,一個idea一段,例如前因/背景一段,處理/論點一至三段,結尾一段。) 


10.      Allocate your time effectively. Spare some time to check for careless mistakes. (有效分配時間,應該按分數的多少分配時間。留D時間check careless mistakes)   

 

準備考試,心力交瘁,這也是一種幸福,因為有所期待才願意付出。
