WRITING

Academic Writing

The writing Module takes 60 minutes. There are two tasks to complete. It is suggested that about 20 minutes are spent on Task 1, which requires candidates to write at least 150 words. Task 2 requires at least 250 words and should take about 40 minutes.

In task 1, candidates are asked to look at a diagram or table, and to present the information in their own words.

In Task 2, candidates are presented with a point of view or argument or problem.

Part of the task realization is to respond appropriately in terms of register, rhetorical organisation, style and content. Appropriate responses are short essays or general reports, addressed to tutors or examiners
