LAST MINUTE TIPS FOR DIRECTED WRITING
1 Do not spend too much time on this section and neglect continuous writing.
2 Spend some time preparing first before you start writing:
i. Task: what is required of you? Formal letter? Informal? article? report? etc
ii. Tone: Formal or informal
iii.Points given: count the number of points given
If it is less than 12, are you required to elaborate or add your own points?
iv. Vocabulary: think of some apt vocab to add into your writing.
Do not overuse proverbs or idiomatic expressions.
v. Check for grammatical errors..past tenses/present tenses or future tenses
3 Do not count the number of words. One and a half page should suffice.
