Do you prepare for AWA at the last minute since it doesn't count towards the score and ppl usually score higher than 4.0 at least?? :)

For some reason, I find Analysis of Argument easier than Aanlysis of Issue. Structure-wise, AoA is much simpler I think...

I wish we could write essays AFTER Q and V. Don't want to spend my brain power on essays!!! :x

i wouldn't worry about it. Pick up a Princeton Review book and it gives some templates. Just go in and write down some arguments to support your idea. THe main point is to show that you can write in a structured and organized manner with some level of thought put into it.

I got a 6 on the awa and i only studied the day before to build some templates.

Hi guys,

I am also thinking of preparing for AWA towards the last moment. Since it will not count in the score and usually people score above 4, i hope, it will not cause a problem.

I have downloaded the topicc bank and i am going to prepare a rough note for almost all. Then fix up one or two templates and just try out a few numbers. I hope this will be sufficient to beat the AWA and get a score of 4-5.

My main concern with the AWA is when taking the exam I may read the topic and fail to understand some of the critical vocabularies in the topic that will mislead my understanding of the topic, and hence the whole essay will be out-of-scope. I'm a non-native English speaker.

Mishari - with the amount of practice and exposure we get through practising these questions - it's unlikely that will happen.
