Exercise 1.
some of your compositions are too short.

Exercise 1
no less than 80 words means you should write more than 80 words!
Exercise 2.
most of you just copy the words from the text literally.

So as to justify your answer you should use your own words and explanation besides some literal quotes.
Some of your texts, do not follow an organised pattern.

Remember to follow this pattern:
1. introduction
2. body
3. conclusion (do not add extra information in the conclusion)


Come on! Cheer up! This was only your first Selectividad exam! You will make it better soon! It is all about practice; the more you practice, the better: better results, and it will tire you less and less. I believe that we learn by practice and remember: Tomorrow's battle is won during today's practice.

Let's get to work!
