For 2014, both comprehension and essay task were based on a character named Dr. Knox, a plastic surgeon, a group of body snatchers, set in Edinburgh. The passage was taken from "Fleshmarket" by Nicola Morgan.

In 2015 common theme for both the comprehension and writing topic were based on a passage taken from the book "A Monster Calls" by Patrick Ness. The writing task was to "continue/complete the story". The 'monster' is a metaphor for the main character's mother's cancer or possibly death.

Past papers contained excerpts from classics such as Grahame's "The Wind in the Willows" and "The Call of the Wild" by Jack London.
