    I am really unclear about the writing part of the exam tomorrow. Our teacher has advised us to use metaphors, alliteration, similes, but sometimes they don't fit the purpose/style which you have to write in. Would you still have to use all of these techniques if you're writing a complaint letter for example? Or is it more focused on fitting in with the purpose than using stylistic devices? Also, is your writing meant to be creative or serious/realistic, I'm finding it hard to get a balance. Sorry for asking loads of questions, but I'm really unsure of what I'm supposed to do and would really appreciate any help before the exam tomorrow
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
