  1. What is your view of the need for a change of syllabus in 2013. What has changed? What motivated the change? What should someone taking the 2013 paper be prepared for that are no longer applicable based on all the discussions and advices of the past syllabus?

    • I think previous discussions based on the past syllabus are still largely relevant because posts on this blog have never been focused on specific exam techniques but really more on broader thinking, reading and writing skills. Vocabulary for instance, is still largely relevant in Paper 2 because this is now handled primarily with the short answer questions rather than a dedicated vocabulary section. In other words, the focus is now mainly on understanding of text IN context rather than dictionary knowledge. AQ has more weight now – a good thing – because it tests higher order thinking.
