May I ask you something? If there's a question asked you to 'write a letter to your
friend...' , does it included formal and informal letter (format) ? or just write a simple
paragraph without format? Because I've read some blog that write it in a simple one ,
and the other are the same (formal and informal letter). These confused me everytime
I do an essay .Pls reply ASAP ;) ty. *Sorry for my broken english*

If you are writing a letter to your friend,mother,father,cousin etc- you must


write an informal letter. There is format which you must follow like the one in
my blog.As for format, just follow the sample in my blog....All the best!

It's weird when the question asked us to do an essay in about 50 words.. and I only
write 2/3 isi(content) and after I counted back it almost 100+words . How to make it
to a simple essay n fulfill the question, my teacher also said if we write some
idioms/metaphor/etc we'll get an extra marks from that ...but the problem is , every
time I write an essay it will almost more than we supposed to write , how can i
possibly write idioms if I already write more than 50 words ... :'< argh that's so
frustrating !

Kopitiam English7 October 2015 at 07:59

In the first place you don't have any essay writing within the 50 words limit.
The only part where you are required to write 'in about 50 words' is the 'e-
mail'. Whereas, the novel part requires you to write 'in not less than 50 words'.
As for essay component you are required to write 'in between 120 to 200
words'.
So, which part are you talking about young man...?

A question,the question said : "write at least 200-250 words" but you wrote roughly
350 words.Basically,we can write more words as we like as long as it's not 120 or less
?

The range 200-250 is the old format. The new format the range is around 120
