Write to express, not to impress.

Express your answers in grammatically-correct words and sentences so they understand. Don't try to impress with big words unless you're 100% sure of the meaning and usage.

By the way, you're confident with the others (not for).

Re: are O level english easy to score???

But if too many common words and phrases, wouldn't it be too boring and will get low marks for the language component?

Re: are O level english easy to score???

i think it's quite okay? as long as you make sure that you have all the basic grammar and sentence structures correct, dont use weird expressions and things like that, i think getting an A or B wont be a problem?

i think the most impt is ur basic grammar and fluency. then vocab and all that is a bonus lor. for paper one i think what is important is also originality, and logical analysis on your part. but for O's i dont think you will require much originality and analysis la.

and then for paper 2 comprehension, oyu must have the skills of answering lor, and summary try to get full marks? plus, sometimes the vocab questions they can reuse one, so probably you want to revise by reading through all those vocab qns you have done before.

hope it helps. but everything above is just imo.

got an a2 for it. i worked a lot on my orals, and my teacher was extremely good

I'm kind of afraid of the Situational Writing.. Later I cannot think of the points to write..

Wow, chill dude, you're scaring him out.

Well, I think it's quite easy to score for English if you have the basics. Your grammar and spelling should be at your fingertips, that's important. For vocabulary wise, I don't think so you have to worry about it. As long as you know how to describe the situation, you'll be fine. Just concentrate on your grammar. Hope it helps! (:

Re: are O level english easy to score???

for compositions, use good vocabulary... there are a lot worth checking out in the dictionary..
however, dont try to impress the invigilators and throw in a whole chunk of vocab words.
because too many of it will give them the impression that you're trying to impress them way too much.
use not more than 15 good vocab words.
of course, time management is very important so spend time wisely otherwise you're going to panic when you arent able to complete the paper.

As for Paper 2, try to score on the vocab list part where they ask you to give another meaning for the word in whichever line of Passge A or Passage B. (hint: sometimes these words are repeated in previous years papers) Summary should be easy too. As for answering comprehension questions, if they ask you to explain in your own words, then you have to do it- change some of the important words in the sentences.

Appeal to the 4-5 senses in your descriptions if you have the time. But importantly, deliver your plot.

Not too much, one sentence is enough, make it sweet and simple.
Otherwise you might get too carried away trying to describe things using loud words and ended up getting out of point
