Hi everyone,

is it correct that since the IR section was introduced, the AWA only asks for the analysis of an argument instead of both argument and issue?
So therefore I will be fine if I focus on argument analysis?

Kind regards,

Yes, this is true.

You have 1/2 hr to analyze an argument and another 1/2 for the IR section.

Yes that's correct.

First 30 minutes - Analysis of Argument
Next 30 minutes - Integrated Reasoning 12 Questions
Then over the next 3 hours you have your Quant + Verbal Section

Analysis of an argument is similar to Critical Reasoning in some ways. How you approach an argument and decide whether to support it or weaken is exactly what CR tests. You should get some practice with CR - then think about how it might apply to your writing essay.

I think it is confirmed that IR section has replaced AWA ISSUE. So we need to prepare only for AWA argument and IR.
