English Language > Writing > Writing to advise


Be the examiner!

Examiners have very detailed notes on what should have been written. Knowing what the examiner is looking for will help you to see what you should be writing.

Here are some criteria that the examiner looks for in text that is written to advise:

  • Using an appropriate format to match the task
  • Using an appropriate tone, to match the audience
  • Using appropriate and interesting vocabulary
  • Successful advice
  • Level of structure and fluency

Place yourself in the examiner's shoes and try to mark the three sample answers on the previous page in the activity below. It might help to print out the sample answers so you can have them in front of you.
