Right way to use templates in PTE Write Essay

Everyone loves templates! After all, what can go wrong? Some people will even have you believe that you take a template and you will be able to answer any PTE Write Essay question easily, and also get full marks in it. Sorry to break the news to you – They are absolutely wrong. Templates are useful but you need to learn the right way to use templates. Otherwise, you can also end up losing marks. In this video, you will learn the right way of using essay templates. The article continues after the video, don’t miss reading it.

Pick the template according to the essay question

The very first thing you need to keep in mind is this – use a template which is suitable for the type of essay question. If it is an advantages/disadvantages essay and you try to fit in a generic opinion template, it won’t help! So as soon as you see the essay question you should try to identify the type of essay and then pick a template suitable for it. This is something we go into great detail in our online PTE course.

Have multiple templates

You should have not just templates specific to the question types, but also multiple templates for each question type. This will give you more option in the exam. You can often combine parts of these different templates and make something much more suitable for the question you are trying to answer.

Make your own template variations

We highly recommend this! Take the standard templates and try to make your own versions of those templates. You can change some words, you can add or remove a sentence. Keep the overall structure same, but within it make some changes. The biggest advantage of doing this is that you will actually learn how to write an essay. You will not end up forgetting parts of the template or make any other such mistakes in the exam.

Use a template only if you are confident

If you come across a question in the exam which doesn’t necessary fit into your essay template or you feel that after putting it in the template it doesn’t seem logical, then please don’t use that template. It is much better that you write something simpler on your own, than using bombastic words that come across as silly and illogical.

Aim to write a unique essay

All said and done, for a top score you should learn to write a high quality essay from scratch. Our PTE Coaching programs teach things like these. So, while we do provide templates to students, we also advise them to not depend just on templates. It is seen that essays written from scratch come across as more logical and natural.
