Strategies and test tips

  • Research the issue and determine what crucial elements you should focus on in order to answer the question, as well as any points of view you want to convey and explore.
  • Examine the essay prompt to figure out how to respond. Prompts for essays can be written in a variety of ways. For example, in this statement you need to highlight points that you agree or disagree with. 

  • Do not exceed the 300-word limit for the essay. 
  • Use academic English to the best of your ability, divide your entire essay into medium sized paragraphs. Bullet points are not a good idea either and do not extend your paragraphs to be too long either.
  • Avoid using technical jargon and short forms. Make sure your essay has a variety of sentence types including simple sentences, compound sentences and complex sentences. 
  • Use essay templates available online to practice your writing skills, so you will be prepared for when you actually have to write in the exam. 



  • The best responses stay on topic, provide logical and clear information. They also back up their claims with specifics, examples, and/or explanations.

2.Development, structure and coherence: 

  • Having several paragraphs and a clear introduction, body, and conclusion that are all related to the essay’s topic will get you the best marks.
