PMR Summary Tips

Anonymous said...
Teacher Nuha , for summary , how if i did not use my own words ? I mean like copying the whole text , will my marks deducted ? And if i use my own words means that i can score higher ??

Dear Anonymous, 
  • If you selectively copy the points from the text, no marks will be deducted. I always encourage my students to copy the points exactly from the text to avoid spelling or sentence errors. 
  • Use the correct sequence connectors like next, then, moreover, etc to get at least 3 marks for your language. 
  • If you want to use your own words, make sure the meaning of the sentence does not change from the original sentence.
  • Strictly important: Make sure your summary is not more than 60 words. (Not even 61!)
