Re: Help : GP essay

i think it means like government control means control over it's own people.
because media and technology is very powerful such that it can threaten the government and influence people such that the government doesn't have much control anymore ^_^ .

Re: Help : GP essay

Hi there,

Government control in this context can be understood as the innate ability of the government to influence the policies that runs the country. Such policies run the gamut from socio-political administration and citizenship rights and also the economic direction in which the government intends to pursue. The policies mentioned have the inherent capacity to shift and manipulate, both directly and indirectly, the thoughts and actions of its citizens in their many diverse social groups. In addition to that, government control includes the potentiality to assume partial or complete control over the moral values, principles and even ethical codes of all civilians under the umbrella of power which belongs to the government.

I hope I've helped in some ways or another

Re: Help : GP essay

Hi there, just some simplified points over a range of spectrum you could consider:

Government control-

Politically: Ability to form policies, regulate and ensure people follow them.
Economically: Ability of the gov to regulate trade barriers/businesses/MNCs
Socially: Ability to maintain peace and order in the country
Media: Ability to control the media in the country e.g. censorship

Re: Help : GP essay

I only done with Intro and a point.
Hope someone points out my mistakes as well as grammar/vocab whatsoever.
I don't want trap in this vicious cycle!
FYI, i got a S for my GP.

Introduction
Media and technology are inevitable parts of our daily lives in this modern society, they can influence the way we think through exchange of ideas and therefore could affects the government when the content is against the policies implemented or threatened the sovereign of the country. Government organizations would then step in and mete out measures to stop the anti-government movement.
Development/Argument (Point 1)
Media has been a communication platform for people to exchange their ideas. However some are topics are sensitive in the sense that it can affect the political position of the country.
Some illustration (Point 1)
China implemented censorship policies, enforced by filters colloquially known as “The Great Firewall of China” Google.cn search results were filtered to remove some results concerning the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, sites supporting the independence movements of Tibet and Taiwan, the Falun Gong movement, and other information perceived to be harmful to the People's Republic of China (PRC).

Re: Help : GP essay

Hi .Memo. Your sentence structuring and usage of vocabulary is quite.. bad. You might want to read through your work again, and try to identify your grammatical/tenses errors. Better you realise your mistakes on your own rather than have others point out to you. And the last sentence was wayyyy too long.

I would recommend that you not try to use words that you do not fully understand in your essay. Sometimes simple essays can be a pleasant read too. Fluency and coherence are of the utmost importance in essays.

Re: Help : GP essay

Haha its not something that your GP tutor would be able to help much with. Reason being it is very very tedious to go through each of your grammatical mistakes and ensuring that you correct your misconceptions. A better way would be for you to read, read and read some more. The few paragraphs you wrote gave a very unnatural and 'forced' feeling. As if you tried to glue separate ideas together, which does not flow at all.

If you are interested you could add me on msn and I'll try to point out the mistakes/misconceptions you have. Its quite tedious to type out everything here.

Re: Help : GP essay

Oh yes... reading, I'm not an avid-reader so perhaps speaks for the result itself.

Btw, since you mentioned reading, what are the reading materials you recommends?

Re: Help : GP essay

Hi there, I scored A in my GP prelims and is currently giving english and gp tuition. My advice is that you go and find some really good grade-A essays written by your peers or from other schools. I believe that if you do not even recognize how an A essay looks like, it will be impossible for you to reproduce an A essay. I am not asking to to memorize the essays because that would be redundant. You should try to identify the structure of the argument and hopefully learn some good vocabs as well.
