I want to make some simple suggestions for how you can use these recent graphs to practice.

To be honest, students get too obsessed with the most recent questions.

You can practice with a question from years ago and a question from yesterday – it makes absolutely no difference.

What makes an actual difference is how you study.

Here is what I recommend:

  1. Practice writing about a graph in 20 minutes, in test conditions.
  2. This is your ability. Now, check it by underlining the vocabulary, grammar, data. Are there many grammar mistakes? Do you use the same words over and over? Do you include all the data?
  3. Now that you know your weaknesses, you can also sign up to have them marked by me here.
  4. Write about another one focusing on your mistakes. Don’t worry about timing. Take as long as you need to make it perfect.
  5. Repeat this process over and over until your start to notice your writing improving.

Hope that works for everyone!
