Looking for VCE English past papers to practice your skills and apply your knowledge? You’ve come to the right place. Go straight to papers>>
In your VCE English language course you have undertaken studies around how the English language is used to create meaning in written, spoken and multimodal texts of varying complexity. Literary texts for analysis and presentation of an argument are taken from the past and present, both from Australia and other cultures. This course meets the needs of students with a wide variety of expectations and aspirations, including those for whom English is an additional language.
Completing past exam papers is one of the best ways to prepare you for your final exams. The VCE English Study Design contains the most current and up to date information about VCE English and the VCE English Exam. You will find links to past exam papers from 2001 onwards further down. Note that older exam papers are not necessarily a guide to the current VCE exam requirements.
We’ve organised the past papers by course and year, naming the links as accurately as possible. If you find any errors, please let us know.
Sometimes, there is only a marking guide available, in others, the marking guide contains sample answers as well. The table usually shows each question and the criteria with each mark or mark range.
3 Tips to Help you Prepare for Your VCE English Exam
- Be Prepared. Make sure you have notes on each of the Key Knowledge and Skills set out in the VCE English Study Design. Also, read the examiners reports from previous years.
- Revision Schedule. Cramming at the last minute is never recommended. Draw up a revision schedule that makes the best use of your time leading up to the exam period.
- Practice Past Paper Exams. Complete three or four recent past exams to revise and help you prepare for what’s to come. Work with friends to check and comment on each other’s answers. If you get stuck speak to your teacher too.
3 Tips to Help you Ace Your VCE English Exam
- Use Your Reading Time Efficiently. During your reading time, aim to put your plans together for what you are going to write. Choose the best essay topic for you and make mental notes. This means you can start writing the moment they say you can.
- Write Efficiently. Time management is essential. If you made plans while you were reading, you can start writing straight away. Decide which questions are more difficult and apportion time as required. Ideally, it is best to finish one section at a time rather than bouncing around from section to section.
- Check Your Work. Never leave early. Read, check and re-check your work.
