James’ Tips

This week we take a look at a sample by a student targeting a 7.0 who made an all too common and critical mistake.


Can you spot the positive and negative objective marking criteria?


  1. singular plural dissonance
  2. prepositions
  3. collocation
  4. solecism, one broken sentence
  5. plural in the general sense
  6. weak conclusion


🔹 Comments 🔹

Grammatical range is evident and consistent, a plus. The writer however gases out at the finish line no doubt due to poor time management, demonstrating only a single compound sentence and a common one to boot, while also employing the red flag, “and”. While grammatical accuracy is generally good, in short, nothing substantial nor outstanding is done to warrant being in the top 5%, ie, cinch that 7.0.
