About


SWT is the 1st one in the Writing Section. Test takers will see a textual passage before they are given 10 minutes to write down their one-sentence summaries of the text. The word limit of the response is 5 - 75. In exam, there are 2 to 3 questions of SWT.


Exam Tips


SWT is a very simple question type. There are two keys in answering: to find key points in the passage; to connect the key points into a grammarly correct sentence.

When searching for key points, we can use the Elimination Approach. Examples and explanatory sentences should be eliminated and the key points can be found within the remaining sentences. When connecting the key points, make sure correct conjunctions are used. For example, the frequently used word ‘however’ is not a conjunction. ‘I love my teacher, however I don't want to go to school.’ is a grammarly incorrect sentence.


Time Span

The maximum time given for each SWT question is 10 minutes. It is an individually timed task, meaning that finishing this question sooner or later will not impact the time alloted to other tasks. Therefore, there is no need to rush, and responses should be carefully checked before submission.
