Getting a higher grade

If you follow all of the previous advice, then you should have the following:

  • a plan
  • the purpose and audience
  • a good structure made up of several main points
  • varied sentence beginnings
  • technical accuracy (punctuation and spelling)

To get a high grade, you'll need to use the following techniques:

  • Tense - a persuasive letter is normally written in the simple present tense, eg "As Chair of the Friends of Gnashley High School, I am writing to ask you..."
  • Linking language - use logical conjunctions such as therefore, furthermore, because etc.
  • Clarity -
