You have 90 minutes to create two texts. Each text ought to be about 220-260 words long (see the relevant questions section at the bottom for those who have concerns about the word count). Part 1 is obviously an essay, while in part 2 a choice is had by you of 3 tasks (letter/email; proposal; report; review).
The examiners assess you on 4 elements:
- Content — Did you will do the job you were asked to complete?
- Communicative achievement — Did you use the tone that is right degree of formality?
- Organisation — Do you link paragraphs together? Is there a logical flow?
- Language — Do you show your sparkling vocabulary off or do you merely use First Certificate words? Did you make plenty of grammar mistakes?
