  7. 7. 77 FCE by Matifmarin Summary for FCE ExamSummary for FCE Exam Updated JANUARY 2015Updated JANUARY 2015  NextNext It is advisable to master at least two categories of writings from the range required for FCE before you take the exam. (1) An article in the FCE is a writing in which the author expresses his opinion and ideas about a particular topic in a magazine, newspaper or website. The main purpose of an article is to interest and engage the reader, so there should be some opinion or comment, and an eye-catching heading will help. (2) An email/letter is written in response to the situation outlined in the input material. Candidates should be aware that they will be expected to write grammatically correct sentences with accurate spelling and punctuation in a style suited to the situation and target reader. (3) An essay is usually written for a teacher and may be written as a follow up to a class activity. It should be well organised, with an introduction, clear development and an appropriate conclusion. The main purpose of this task is the development of an argument and/or discussion of issues surrounding a certain topic. In an essay you are expected to present a convincing argument, which is developed in a logical sequence. (4) A Report has a formalised structure (i.e. executive summary, scope, discussion, recommendations) and it is written with a specific purpose in mind, or with a particular focus. A report may be written for a superior (e.g. a boss or college principal) or a peer group (e.g. club members or colleagues). The content of a report is to some extent factual and draws on the prompt material, but there will be scope for candidates to make use of their own ideas and experience. (5) A review is usually written for an English language magazine, newspaper or website. The main purpose is to describe and express a personal opinion about something which the writer has experienced (e.g. a film, a product, a holiday, a website etc.). The target reader is specified in the task, and candidates should be encouraged to use this information when choosing appropriate ideas and language to include in their response. Read the following information below and practise:
