I'm trying to formulate a plan of attack for the speaking and writing sections of the exam. My current thinking is that the correct use of english and the impressive use of vocabulary and grammar are far more important than the impressiveness of the content.
By that I mean, that I'd rather take a very simple side to an arguement in the essay and monologue sections, ensuring that i still cover all the points and then worry about making it sound/read well, than take ages thinking about the best possible content.
For example, If i was asked for my opinion on whether technology has improved our standards of living, i'd say it would be more effective in the exam to take a simple stance (even if it wasn't one that I wholeheartedly agreed with) than take a complex view of the question and risk losing marks trying to get my point across?
Would others that have already taken the exam agree with this?
