Hello folks,
Can some one please let me know if they have used Chinese burned template recently in an awa. I used his template once in the previous test and that did not go well. Shall i still use it. ? Maybe it would have been my writing. I dont know for sure. Just want to know what are other people's experiences with using this template?

It is just a template. Nothing is said about if it is enough or not to write a badass essay during the exam.

Every student should start from there to a deeper understanding of the AWA as a whole.

See here for a full dissertation.

I had used this template for my awa essay and scored a 6.0 But the trick is in just getting an idea of how to structure the essay and not follow the template blindly.

If you look at it, Chinese burned template example is an argument which was ill-conceived. Now in the real test if you get a waterproof argument you need to change the way your essay progresses.

Completely agree with carcass, it's just a template and a good starting point. Please put in a genuine effort to build a story in your awa essay.

Best,

I have seen the template. To be honest you can go through it once if you like but more likely or not it just helps with the structure. I think there are tons of template out there. You can go through them if you like.
