Extended Writing – Practice Examination Task Outline

Monday’s examination slot is being used as an opportunity for you to practice writing a controlled assessment style essay. Attached to this post is the task outline which should allow you to prepare yourself for this session. Your practice essay will be marked and you’ll be able to use this feedback to support your formal assessment next term.

To prepare:

  1. Write a bullet point outline of the structure you’re going to use to answer the question
  2. Find relevant quotations to support your points (at least one per paragraph)
  3. Re-read or listen to the text
  4. Review the online resources, particularly the presentation on advanced quotation strategies.
