Many students face difficulty in preparing for the AWA Section on the GRE. While coaching classes, study materials and the Mock tests take care of the Quants and Verbal Sections, students often neglect the Writing section and may end up losing the competitive admissions battle to their peers due to a poorer Analytical score. If you want to get more insight on how hot the things have become in recent time, take a look at one of my previous posts Learn from fall 2014 mistakes.
GRE AWA Template – issue
GRE AWA Template : Issue Template
First Paragraph: Introduction
The issue/belief/idea/opinion that ____________________________________ is an interesting/controversial one. This issue is increasingly important in this age of _____________________. Many people believe _______________________, but these people overlook ___________________________________. Furthermore, __________________________________. In this essay, I will argue that _______________________________.
Second Paragraph: Support
There are many good reasons for ____. However, it cannot be ignored/overlooked that ________. A classic example of this is ______________.
Try to add something interesting in this paragraph. Make sure you use a few complicated structures – try putting a sub ordinate clause first. Like this:
While many type of professional promote the notion that ________, I believe the opposite should be argued given the current situation/status of ______________________.
I have argued ___________________. This view will become increasingly dominant in the coming century given ____________________. Many of these issues can never be resolved to everybody’s satisfaction, but in the long run, promoting ___________________ will lead to betterment of all involved. Finally, _____________________________ increased (something like global co operation, cultural understanding etc.) can only result from this, resulting in ______________________ for everybody.
