The Writing Test
Your introductory paragraph will make an impression on the examiner. This paragraph should tell the examiner the approach you are taking to the topic.
It should make a clear statement of the facts as you see them, and advise of the line you will be taking. Avoid detailed arguments in this paragraph or lengthy examples.
Your language must be precise and unambiguous and leave the examiner in no doubt as to your reasoning. The tone should be controlled, not dogmatic or preaching.
Try to make the reader want to read on with a feeling of interest in your subject matter.
Regular reading is the key to improving your writing. Read a newspaper or a book but not on the computer. The electronic image will not reinforce your skills as the written document will.
