Useful notes for candidates following a webinar on ECPE writing correction offered by the Hellenic American Union:
You can write a rough plan on the last page of your official writing booklet.
One and a half page is required so that the topic is deemed well developed. Otherwise, you lose rhetoric points (content and organisation)
You can leave a blank line between paragraphs or divide paragraphs traditionally. The division must be clearly distinguished.
If the essay is not finished, you lose rhetoric points.
Sample essay commentary:
My opinion: Rhetoric: 2 (that was not a for and against essay), Grammar: 5, Vocabulary: 4 ---> Total points: 11
Examiner's total score: 12
