Getting ready for your P5 Higher Chinese Composition exam? Here are some practice questions from Singapore schools that you can use.

I’ve categorised the composition questions according to the 2 main types of writing – situational writing (情境作文qing jing zuo wen) and continuous writing (完成文章 wan cheng zuo wen).

P5 Higher Chinese Composition need-to-know

Do note that you’ll be given one situational writing question and one continuous writing question during the actual Higher Chinese 高华 exam. This is similar to what you’ll get at the Primary 6 PSLE exam as well.

You’ll need to choose between the two and write a Chinese composition with more than 200 Chinese characters within a time limit of 50 mins.

Which type of Higher Chinese Composition is easier?

This is a question that I often get from students and parents.

My advice to Primary 5 students is to spend more time practising continuous writing since the questions are often easier. However, spending more time on continuous writing does not equate to not practising situational writing at all. It’s always good to have a backup plan.
