Study Tips
It is necessary in Task 1, Academic Writing, to quickly identify the main or significant features of a given graphic text, summarise these and make comparisons where relevant. Look for significant features such as trends, which stand out in a graph, key stages in a process or procedure, important characteristics of an object. Develop your skills in organising a summary of information supplied, including relevant information, using a variety of sentence types, and appropriate vocabulary. Always check your spelling.
