What a writer can do, what a fiction writer or a poet or an essay writer can do is re-engage people with their own humanity. Barbara Kingsolver
Exams are coming. Of course, you want to nail the exam. Before writing a composition on, read some tips that will help you to successfully cope with given assignment.
Let’s get started!
- Prepare for Any Topic
The composition shows not only your level of language knowledge but also your erudition. Therefore, before preparing for the exam read the texts on various topics. This will expand your horizons.
- Think About the Question
It is better that you spend some time on elaborating on a task because you have to answer the question. Moreover, you will illustrate that you know the problem. Some tests have an option where you can choose one of the proposed essay questions. You should skim them quickly and pick the one you like.
- Create a Good Introduction for an Essay
Propose a brief, succinct outline of the major thoughts to be built at the beginning of the composition. If appropriate, you can explain main ideas. An introductory paragraph can go wrong if you write a lot of specific aspects there, and mention them later in a text. All over, the one can begin with the brief sentences and avoid writing too complicated sentences. This is the best way to make your speculations clear.
- Essay Plan
Once you have received the assignment, determine the type of composition and the plan. Be sure to follow the structure of the essay, otherwise, your work will not be evaluated highly.
A composition plan will help you to assemble your thoughts, and write important arguments. Still, do not overload the plan with details. Just main points. Consider spending 6 - 9 % of your time on writing an introductory part. Get back to the brainstorming and start bringing together all your comments, thoughts, suggestions and ideas. Try to highlight appropriate aspects that you came up with during creating a plan. If you find it difficult to create an essay plan you can search for essay planner on Pinterest.
At this stage of writing, you should think of the argumentation and clarify them. In the next lines say what you think of the statement and make your assumption. It is a great possibility to show the analytical skills and show that you can more than just memorizing facts. The last but not the least, make an analysis of the information you wrote before.
- Essay Conclusion
In a summary, you must compare vital premises. To make the composition richer try to include new thoughts. Sure, you may repeat something you have sad before, yet new speculation will be like an icing on a cake. For instance, you can write why a premise is vital and justify it.
- How Long Is an Essay
At the exam, you won’t have a lot of time, so the length of the composition depends on how much time you have. Be concise. Some students think that the principle "the more, the better" works, and write huge compositions. Alas, the examiners will not raise the grade for the fact that you did not meet the requirements and wrote too much. You don’t have to write a long introduction, a few sentences are more than enough. You must go straight to the chase. To build a logical text you must choose several arguments and line up everything in a logical sequence.
- Leave Some Time for Proofreading
Use your time wisely, so that at the end of the exam you have at least 5 minutes left to check the essay. This is a real chance to "save" your work by correcting the detected errors.
