Exam Tips

* Plan.

* Remember Punctuation.

* Include paragraphs and use paragraph openers.

* Instead of using the same word twice, use a synonym.

* Write legibly. I have seen some funny "Rs" which look back to front and interesting "Ks." When myself or other Examiners have 200 Exam Papers to mark, we don't waste time trying to figure out what letter you wrote and it could cost marks.

* Write on the line.

* Read the question well, so you know what tense to write in.

* If it's a letter, read the question well, to ascertain if it will be a formal letter or an informal letter.

* Always, proofread for spelling, punctuation and word order.

See Example below.

Good Luck! :-) Related image
