    I'm sitting Edexcel ESL in 5 days and I have no idea about the exam so these are few questions
    How to write a report ? what's the format and register ?
    How am I supposed to develop the points stated in part 4 in only 100 words (writing between 75 to 100 words) ?
    Should I write each point in an individual paragraph ?
    Should I write the summary in an article format or just in one paragraph ?
    If I'm asked to write an email as an entry in a teen magazine competition should I write it in letter format ? formal or informal ?

    Thanks ^_^

    Do not PANIC. You will do just fine in your exam.

    Report should be formal and detailed

    In part 4, when writing points, do not go into much detail as the examiner only wants to check your style of writing and not the content exclusively. Be sure to write each point in a separate paragraph to score marks on layout.

    The summary can be written with subheadings for the points and just the detail that is required. It should be small and concise.

    For teen magazine questions just write an email which you would send to a employer for example. Remember to add detail.

    Good luck on your exam.
