    Hello.
    It seems I require some help with English Language [9093] (from 2014 syllabus). The problem is, I have already appeared for Paper1 and Paper2 (AS level) and scored an A Grade. I am now appearing this november for Paper3 and Paper4, but I have absolutely no idea how to start preparing. I've gone through the whole syllabus and concluded that P3 is just a continuation of commentary in P1, but I have absolutely no clue about P4.
    I've already seen the sample papers on the CIE website, but I still don't understand.
    Could anyone help me by providing some resources. Remember that i've already done P1 and P2, which I studied from the book that was endorsed by CIE. Anything would be helpful, websites, books suggested by teachers, any sort of resource will help!

    Thanks in advance.

    The cambridge textbook for as lists alternatives to P4, do 5 6 7 8 or 9. I know 5 is coursework so should be easy enough. Btw can you advise me on the AS level commentary party(urgent!) and the P2 also if you have time.

    look for a document called- scheme of work. It tells you what you will be tested on and some additional links/resources.

    For Paper 4, question 1, read Exploring Spoken English by Ronald Carter.
    For Paper 4, question 2, read English as a Global Language by David Crystal.
    For Paper 4, question 3, read The Language Instinct by Steven Pinker.
    When I say read, I mean read, read, read and recite by heart. After you know the information try completing the sample questions and scoring yourself with the marking scheme.
    Good luck

    Hi! I'm taking the AS level exams in May 2014 and A2 from 2014. I'll be self'studying or taking tuitions for A2 so here are some resources I found:

    Specimen papers for the 2014 papers on their website! http://www.cie.org.uk/programmes-and...3/past-papers/

    And resources for paper 3:

    Investigating talk, Cockcroft, F
    ISBN number: 978-0340730867
    http://www.cambridge.org/us/esl/cata...e_locale=en_US
    http://www.cambridge.org/us/academic...ge-2nd-edition

    Online:
    http://www.cie.org.uk/programmes-and...port-material/

    Websites for A Basic Guide to Textual Analysis http://www.engl.niu.edu/wac/txtanal.html
    Language and power http://www.universalteacher.org.uk/l....htm#adgrammar

    That's what I've got from some online thread. Hope it helps! :)

    p.s. Sorry if some of the links don't work or have expired!
