PEG Accreditation Test 2022 – Part 3: Fiction Editing and Proofreading questions

Join PEG for a webinar on the PEG accreditation test 2022 as preparation for sitting the 2024 test or simply as a means to honing your knowledge and skills and earning valuable CPD hours.

Date: Thursday, 16 May 2024

Time: 14:00–17:00

Place: Online (Zoom meeting)

About our facilitator

John Linnegar has been a teacher and trainer, and a setter of more tests and examinations than he cares to remember, during a career spanning 40+ years. He has also acted as an external marker and moderator for examinations set by the Western Cape Department of Education and national examinations. With Cathy Robertson, he has been a co-examiner of PEG’s first four accreditation tests and also one of the markers.

About the workshop/webinar

The purpose of the webinar/workshop is to demonstrate how questions should be answered, what to do and what not to do, and to clarify how candidates can prepare themselves for the next accreditation test. The vehicles for achieving this purpose will be the fiction editing question 2C (structural, stylistic and copy-editing) and the proofreading questions 3A and 3B in PEG’s 2022 test. It will be useful for those who intend participating to work through these questions beforehand, providing answers where possible, in order to derive maximum benefit from the test. Those who sat the 2022 test should bring their completed tests to the webinar to enable them to discover where they could have performed better.
