Techniques for Short Writing

You will have 25 minutes for this task.

Spend 5 minutes on planning and 15 on the actual test.

This test is much like the long writing task but a shorter version. You will not be marked on your handwriting for this test, however punctuation is still important. You will need to include the following in your writing:

 
Grammar: Paragraphs, Full stops, Capital letters, Exclamation marks, Question marks…

A variety of complex sentences and short sentences.

Make sure the story makes sense.

A definite beginning, middle and end to the text.

 

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Does my writing keep the reader hooked and interested throughout?
  • Have I used devices such as similes and metaphors?
  • Have I used the correct punctuation?
  • Do I have a clear beginning, middle and end?

 

The most popular choices for the short writing tasks are:

  • Descriptive writing
  • Recounts and reports
  • Short stories
