RationaleВ ofВ theВ TestВ

TheВ testВ isВ textВ independentВ i. at the. В itВ isВ notВ basedВ onВ aВ setВ textВ orВ syllabus. В В AsВ aВ ProficiencyВ Test, В itВ testsВ bothВ skillsВ andВ knowledge. В В ThereВ isВ aВ balanceВ betweenВ keyВ aspectsВ ofВ language – as, В forВ instance, В readingВ skills, В involvingВ languageВ knowledgeВ asВ wellВ asВ abilityВ toВ processВ meaningsВ throughВ inference, В analysis, В comparisonВ andВ evaluation; В knowledgeВ ofВ grammarВ andВ vocabularyВ toВ theВ extentВ thatВ isВ requiredВ forВ generalВ communicativeВ tasks. В SpecificВ skillsВ involvedВ inВ writingВ areВ alsoВ importantВ electronic. g. В awarenessВ ofВ theВ structureВ ofВ simpleВ writtenВ text messages, В howВ theyВ areВ organized, В andВ theВ kindsВ ofВ formatsВ thatВ areВ used ‐ inВ letters, В forВ instance. В В ReadingВ isВ givenВ 30В marksВ asВ itВ isВ theВ basisВ forВ grammarВ & В writingВ andВ becauseВ itВ isВ importantВ inВ furtherВ studiesВ whichВ studentsВ haveВ toВ undertakeВ inВ theirВ laterВ academicВ operate. В OneВ passageВ ofВ readingВ isВ ofВ narrativeВ type, В (itВ mayВ beВ anВ extractВ fromВ aВ story)В andВ testsВ candidates'В understandingВ ofВ occasions, В heroes, В descriptionsВ andВ alsoВ theВ perceptionВ ofВ meaningsВ whichВ areВ implicitВ inВ theВ detailsВ ofВ theВ story. В OneВ passageВ isВ aВ non‐fictionalВ textВ containingВ information, В argument, В opinion, В factsВ andВ ideas. В В ReadingВ ofВ thisВ kindВ isВ focusedВ onВ abilityВ toВ arriveВ atВ theВ gistВ ofВ anВ idea/argument, В toВ correctlyВ separateВ opinionsВ fromВ factsВ (whichВ impliesВ someВ abilityВ toВ analyse), В toВ beВ ableВ toВ distinguishВ mainВ ideasВ fromВ subordinateВ ones, В toВ understandВ theВ toneВ orВ viewpointВ e. g. В humorous, В ironic, В seriousВ etc. В TheВ thirdВ passageВ isВ aВ shortВ poem, В aroundВ 20В lines. В ThisВ isВ toВ testВ ifВ candidatesВ canВ understandВ languageВ whichВ isВ composedВ differently – itВ isВ notВ linear, В hasВ hiddenВ meanings, В unusualВ expressionsВ andВ usesВ soundВ effectsВ (e. g. В rhyme), В simileВ andВ metaphorВ whichВ conveysВ meaningВ indirectlyВ ratherВ thanВ directly. В В

VocabularyВ isВ givenВ 20В marksВ as: В

1 . В VocabularyВ isВ centralВ inВ readingВ comprehension, В whereВ itВ isВ essentialВ inВ meaning. В 2 . В ItВ isВ alsoВ testedВ separatelyВ inВ orderВ toВ testВ rangeВ ofВ knowledgeВ ofВ words. В В ItВ isВ toВ beВ keptВ inВ mindВ thatВ theВ levelВ ofВ vocabularyВ isВ suchВ thatВ isВ commonlyВ foundВ inВ textsВ thatВ areВ prescribedВ inВ theВ schoolВ readersВ atВ classВ 9В andВ 10. В В GrammarВ +В WritingВ (30В +20)В TheВ MCQВ formatВ doesВ notВ allowВ testingВ ofВ writingВ skillsВ asВ writingВ isВ integrativeВ ofВ otherВ skillsВ andВ needsВ toВ beВ testedВ throughВ production. В В Nevertheless , В itВ isВ feltВ thatВ theВ awarenessВ ofВ theВ componentsВ ofВ writingВ canВ beВ testedВ here   ‐ electronic. g. В formatВ ofВ letters, В paragraphВ firm, В linkageВ betweenВ sentencesВ etc. В TheseВ areВ alsoВ partВ ofВ languageВ knowledge. В В В

ClozeВ TestВ hasВ beenВ includedВ asВ itВ isВ aВ testВ whichВ isВ theВ mostВ globalВ andВ comprehensiveВ testВ ofВ terminology. В ItВ consistsВ ofВ aВ passageВ whereВ theВ firstВ sentenceВ setsВ theВ contextВ ofВ theВ passageВ andВ subsequentlyВ thereВ areВ blanksВ atВ regularВ times. В FillingВ theseВ blanksВ requiresВ anВ overallВ understandingВ ofВ meaningВ andВ ofВ theВ languageВ itemsВ thatВ willВ fitВ intoВ theВ particularВ contextВ ofВ theВ sentences. В ForВ example, В whenВ theВ useВ ofВ articlesВ isВ explainedВ inВ isolation, В aВ userВ cannotВ understandВ whereВ aВ certainВ articleВ needsВ toВ beВ used/omitted. В ItВ isВ onlyВ inВ contextВ thatВ aВ decisionВ regardingВ theВ useВ ofВ anВ articleВ isВ made. В ThereforeВ aВ clozeВ testВ isВ theВ bestВ wayВ toВ knowВ ifВ aВ studentВ canВ inferВ fromВ theВ contextВ whetherВ thatВ articleВ isВ toВ beВ usedВ orВ not. В TheВ sameВ appliesВ toВ otherВ itemsВ likeВ prepositions, В conjunctionsВ etc. В В В

В 

TheВ formatВ andВ break‐upВ ofВ partsВ ofВ theВ testВ isВ asВ follows: В В MaximumВ Marks: В 100В

Time: В 2. 30В HoursВ

TheВ questionВ paperВ containsВ 100В questions. В В AllВ questionsВ areВ compulsory. В TheВ questionsВ areВ dividedВ intoВ theВ followingВ parts: В (ReadingВ 3В passages)В
