It’s getting to the time of year when many students are preparing for mock exams. The students in my FCE class have completed a number of essays over the last couple of years. They’ve been given various pieces of advice and guidance. Now is the time we hope it all comes together. I recently set the final essay before the mock and I included a checklist of what I expect to see. I’ve put the checklist on the Google document they complete their essay on. Students have all this information in other documents (recipes for each writing skill, lists of useful phrases, and writing guides in the text book etc.). I am doing nothing new here but I’ve put it in a checklist format as I previously had done for the PET writing. Here’s hoping it works! You can download this checklist below

This checklist is based on what the students frequently forget and what we’ve been doing in class.
