Year 12 English Internal (12ENGI)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Botha


Students must have achieved Level 1 literacy.

12ENGI will focus on equipping students with the necessary English skills to achieve at Level 2.  This course offers 14 to 17 credits from Internal Achievement Standards as well as two Communication Skills Unit Standards. The option of completing the Writing standard (AS 2.4     and offers writing credits for UE literacy) will depend on student interest and desired pathway in conjunction with teacher discretion. Students in this course who wish to go to University may need to look to other subjects for  Reading and/or Writing credits required for University Entrance or take 13ENGI  the following year.  They should discuss this with their English teacher.

Students wishing to attend Auckland University may need to gain the balance of credits from a Level 3 English course in the following year in order to gain the full 17 English credits required by that institution.  

Note:  This is an internal assessment course and students taking this course will need to have good attendance and be able to meet all deadlines.
