What to do in report writing (Time sequence tips)

Once you finished answering the reading test, start taking notes with time reference. This will help you a lot when writing your report. One piece of paper usually is not enough to write down everything you will listen to. So, if you don’t put the time the facts happen, you can get lost in your own notes.

At the end of both exercises you should have a well-organized draft, and then you will be able to start your report. It is important to write all the facts in their correct time sequence. Nevertheless, you will not be disqualified if you don’t do so. The point here is the examiner will have a good impression if you were able not to mess everything as the other candidates, and you will more chances to be approved.

Also, if you organize the sequence of the events, you will notice that some of them will be repeated. (Believe me: when you will be writing down the key facts during the listening part, you will not have enough time to think or check if you already took notes of that).
Check the image below of a draft schema that I suggest you to do during both reading and listening parts. Take into consideration that I summarized it and, in a real scenario, the facts would need two or three full pages of notes.
