Tips and Tricks

The writing module has two sub-sections (Summarise Written Text and Essay); check below to learn about tips and tricks for these sections.

Summarise Written Text

  • In this section, you need to summarise the passage in a single sentence within 10 minutes using semicolons and commas, but only one full stop is allowed in the sentence.
  • You can include the main points from the given paragraphs to make the summary clear and get the option to cut, copy and paste the text.
  • If you have a strong vocabulary and grammar, you can get 90 out of 90, but if you have an average, you can expect to score around 73.
  • Avoid writing long sentences because the scoring algorithms may not evaluate long sentences with great accuracy, so complete sentences between 35-45 words.
  • While writing the summary, avoid using I, me, we, etc. Write in the form of a third person.
  • Concentrate on the last paragraph because it contains the summary of the text.
  • The nouns and starting words will be capitalized in the sentence.
  • Punctuation must be correct.
  • Only write examples if asked.


  • In this section, you will get 20 minutes to finish the given topic between 200-300 words, and your written essay will be judged on grammar, vocabulary, coherence and written discourse.
  • While writing the essay, try to write between 200-300 words. You may score less if you write less or more than this word limit.
  • Avoid repeating the words or sentences and stay neutral while writing; you can also cut, copy and paste the text.
  • Set the writing format for the essay, whether it is a problem solution, advantages-disadvantages, opinion essay, etc.
  • Be mindful of the grammar, spelling and plurals.
  • Follow the writing pattern of the essay; the first paragraph will be an introduction, the second-third paragraph will be a body and the last paragraph will be a conclusion.
  • To strengthen the essay, provide reasons, examples and statistics in the body paragraphs.
