Sections 1, 2 and 3

Hi there,
In relation to the persuasive essays that we may chose to complete, should we include an introduction and conclusion? Or just the 'thesis' paragraph, 'antithesis' paragraph and the 'synthesis' paragraph?
Also, how long do you suggest that we take per question for both Section 3 and Section 1 questions?
Thank you so much,
Kind regards and best wishes,
Em Stevens

Yes, you should include an introduction and a concluding paragraph. Your introduction is likely to be your thesis. However, if you decide to use a persuasive essay instead of an argumentative style, then you do not require an antithesis nor synthesis per se.

Section 1: 1.5 minutes per question, on average (ACER's booklets still have the old timing, which you should ignore, of 1.3 min/q)

Section 3: 2 min/q, on average (ACER's booklets still have the old timing of 1.5 min/q)

Keep up the good work until the end!
