Paper 4 Oral Communication [30 marks]

Approximate duration of Paper 4: 20 minutes per candidate (including 10 minutes of preparation time) This paper comprises two parts which are thematically linked.

Part 1: Reading Aloud [10 marks]

Candidates read aloud a short text bearing in mind the purpose, audience and context. A short instruction will guide candidates on the context in which the given text is to be read aloud.

Candidates are assessed on their ability to accurately pronounce and clearly articulate the words in the text, and read fluently and expressively, showing an awareness of purpose, audience and context.
