Writing beyond or less than the instructed word-limit:
It is the most common mistake that students make in their essays. While attempting the essay task, students don’t pay any heed to the instructions that much. That is where they lack. Sometimes a student is expected to write 300+ words or a 200-word essay. When translated into a layman language, the question is asking the student to write an essay between 200-300 words. But sometimes students don’t even write 200 words. Therefore, a simple fix to this problem is to read the instructions carefully before attempting a question.
- Not following the proper format:
Many students fail to follow a proper format or structure in the writing task. The structure is very important to score well in the test. It shows that students are capable of developing ideas logically and in an organized manner. Therefore it is strictly advisable to follow a proper format and conclude the main ideas well.

Misunderstanding the question:
Students get 10 minutes to write the summary in the writing module. Many students make a mistake of not reading the question properly and misinterpret the whole meaning. That is why; when they start writing they deviate from the topic and write completely off-track content. Therefore, it is advisable to understand the question well, before writing.
Not writing the summary in ONE single sentence.
This is one grave mistake that students make and it cost them their scores. Most of the time, students tend to summarize the text in more than one sentence. To avoid it, students can use connectors, comma to write their ideas properly. But it is strictly advisable to adhere to the instructions, i.e. to write in one sentence only.
Make sure you use correct grammar:
Many students make a mistake of focusing only on the structure or the word limit or summarizing in one single sentence. But they forget to pay attention to the grammar. It is the backbone of the language. It helps you to construct a sentence. Therefore, it is advisable to make sure your grammar is impeccable or else, whatever you will be writing will not make much sense.
