GAT Writing Task 2
« on: September 22, 2021, 12:28:22 am »

So I've done a bit of GAT research, and I've heard conflicting opinions about doing Writing Task 2. I've heard from Lisa's study guide that the best way to go is to write creatively e.g. a speech or newspaper article, but other people told me that I should simply write a persuasive text but make it creative by adding personal anecdotes, my own twist etc.

If anybody who scored on the GAT could reply and answer what they did, that would be great!

hi, i got a 50 in the writing component of the GAT last year

i personally choose to do persuasive, but not with the strict conventions. i put some anecdotes in, and i addressed all 4 prompts given. i was also told that the persuasive approach would be better, but i think adding some creative flair pays off well. hope this helped!
