Tips on Summary Writing - SPM

1 Read the text once through and try to get a gist of what the text is all about.

2 Read the question and determine the task; look out for words like -feelings, response, what you saw and did, benefits, problems, advantages and disadvantages

3 Do not try to rephrase if you are not very good in English. It is better to select intelligently and join the sentences with connectors.

4 Content = 10 marks Language = 5 marks. So, it is better to go for content. If the sentences are lifted intelligently, you will get about 2 marks for language.

5 Memorise some synonyms as they are useful to replace single words. This will help you get more marks for language.

6 Do keep within the word limit as points after 130 words are not taken into account.
