Spring exam session

Oral exam:

N.B.The exam begins at 9 a.m. Seeing as 10-15 min. are provided for preparation, the students are advised to arrive 15 min. prior to their set time. This means that the student who signed up for 9 a.m. should arrive to the venue at 8.45 a.m.

Exam rationale: The exam will consist of two tasks, one of which will refer to the course texts, and the other will offer a quote to be explained on the spot. The aim of the oral exam is to evaluate the students’ intellectual competences by way of considering the scope of their analytical skills as applied to the study of poetic discourse. The students will be expected to have read and understood all the texts on the course syllabus; they will be asked to analyse (rather than recapitulate the plot of) the fictional texts in light of the theoretical premises discussed during the course. At the same time, the competences acquired in other (possibly earlier) courses will also be called for to make sure the students see the intellectual continuity at the basis of the BA programme.

Evaluation criteria and grading scale:

Analytical skills – 70%

Grammar/Language use – 20%

Pronunciation – 10%

To pass the Modern English exam, the student has to receive a passing grade for Text Interpretation (Written assignment+Oral exam), Academic Writing, and Grammar.
