The exercises and advice in this student book will help students prepare for Section I of the Paper 1: Area of Study HSC English examination. Section I is a reading comprehension task, which requires students to read several short texts, and answer a series of short-answer questions.

To complete this task successfully, students need to be able to read and analyse texts quickly and precisely. The activities in this student book will help familiarise students with different types of texts and the style of questions they are likely to come across in the examination. The combination of activities and model answers will support students in the development of the skills they need to read, analyse, and write effective answers.

This student book features:

  • Guidance on deconstructing short-answer questions and understanding the requirements for different styles of question.
  • Model responses demonstrating how to answer each different style of question.
  • Examples of texts, including poetry, prose fiction, non-fiction, news media, visual, and mixed mode texts.
  • Strategies for reading each type of text in terms of the concept of discovery, with speed and accuracy.
