Practice Papers for SQA Exams Higher English

By David Cockburn

Leckie & Leckie

5 stars out of 5 stars

While well able to stand on its own merits as an invaluable guide to the requirements of the Scottish 'Higher English' exam, Leckie and Leckie's new publication provides the ideal complement to their already well received aid, the 'Higher English Grade Booster'. Materially, the full length practice papers featured mirror the actual exam experience. Here, however, all questions are painstakingly dealt with, each model answer complete with comments and an extended commentary. Invaluable hints and tips from top examiners are also to be savoured, as is an entire section devoted to those facets of 'close reading' which give most concern.

For anyone contemplating an 'English Higher', it's all here, and complete in every way. Indeed, the typical examinee may well ask, "Why didn't someone do this before?"
