If you look close at paragraph two, the text clearly establishes...
Some of your texts, do not follow an organised pattern.

Remember to follow this pattern:
1. introduction

Come on! Cheer up! This was only your second 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!
