All you need to know!
The English Bagrut consists of 4 parts:
 Module E – unseen (70p) + listening comprehension
(30p). This is done at the end of YA
Module F – a new literature exam which includes: 4
poems, 3 short stories and 1 play. The literary pieces are
studied over a period of 2 years. This is done in the winter
Module G – unseen (60p) + writing a composition (40p).
This is done in the summer YB.
Oral Bagrut – project presentation (60%) + personal

The average of all 4 parts is your final grade in English.
