F.A.Q: CPE Essays
Hi Gustavo, I'm going to take the CPE soon, I'm in doubt about something regarding CPE Essays.
I have understood that it's not necessary to refer to text 1 and text 2 when writing the Essay, but I have seen that you say that we have to refer to them, is it a norm or a recommendation?
A professor once told me that it was fine if we just addressed the points of the two texts, that it's not necessary to refer to them.
I will appreciate an answer.
Your professor is right. You need to address the points of the two texts.
That is why I always recommend using 4 paragraphs:
P1 Intro (maybe say what the common point of both texts is)
P2 Summarise text 1 + your own thoughts
P3 Summarise text 2 + your own thoughts
I hope my answer helps.
