What is it?
You will have to write an essay on a given topic. The topic will be mentioned in a line or two. You need to write the essay between 200 and 300 words.
You have 20 minutes to finish this task. Your writing will be judged on grammar, coherence, vocabulary, and written discourse.
You’ll have the ‘word count’ at the bottom of the text box. Make sure that you don’t write under 200 words. Nor should you exceed 300 words or else it’ll attract penalty and you’ll score less. Try to remain neutral in writing on any topic. You should avoid repeating the words or sentences.
You also have a choice to cut, copy, or paste the text. This is useful when you don’t want to take any chance to spell a difficult word in your content. Say: an essay where you need to type the word ‘homeostasis’ more than once.
Select the text you want to delete and left-click ‘cut’
Select the text you want to copy and left-click ‘copy’
Take the cursor to the place where you want to paste the copied or cut text. Then, left-click ‘paste’.
