There are two compulsory writing tasks which should be answered using a formal, academic style of English. Task 2 is worth more so it is suggested that this is written first.

•    Support your points with figures from the diagram.

•    Be prepared for a range of different diagrams (graphs, tables, bar charts, pie charts, processes, illustrations or maps).

Task 2: 250 words (40 minutes)
Write an essay in response to a given opinion or problem
