The purpose

In order to be able to write good essays it is first of all essential to make sure that you understand the purpose of the task. It may seem obvious the purpose is to test your ability to write essays for university or college in English.

However, a moment’s reflection will make it clear that the test task is quite unlike a university essay, since it is typically 1 to 2 pages long and is written on a unprepared topic in about 40 minutes.

No university essay is like that. Even in university examination, where you may have to write about two pages in half an hour, you are expected to have studied the subject in advance.

So let us consider some possible purposes for the English test essay. These can be said to be:

a) to show that you are able to select relevant ideas and information to answer a question

b) to show your knowledge and understanding of the topic

c) to show your ability in presenting a logical argument

d) to show your skills in organising your ideas systematically

e) to show your ability to use sophisticated English

f) to show your basic grass of English grammar and vocabulary.
