      Which style of writing is best and gets most marks on the personal writing section?

    15. avatar image

      How can you prepare the essay.. Is it okay to just make it up on the day?? And did u ever do the merchant of Venice?

      im not creative either so what I would say is choose a topic i.e. that has happened to you before. For example: a place that you find interesting. I would choose a real place that I once visited
