写作差三分,不是因为大作文,而是因为它!

近期有同学反映,听说读三项都过了,唯有写作差三分,完全找不到原因。从来没有想过不卡PTE的写作最后却成为了8炸路上的拦路虎,这到底是为什么呢?

写作只有两种题型:write essay 和summarize written text,俗称大作文和小作文。题量分配一般来说是2小2大,3小1大这种搭配,但是近期考试的同学们普遍反映现在的PTE考试更倾向于2篇大作文了。小作文的部分有可能是两篇有可能是三篇,但是大作文考到两篇的概率大大增加了。

那么写作差三分其他全过是因为什么呢?大作文写的太差?

我们从评分角度来尝试解析一下,影响writing分数的几道题,除了writing部分本身的题型之外 ,听力中的sst和fib以及阅读中的fib都会对writing有影响。其中sst的影响最大,这也是我们一直强调,请务必将sst当成小作文去写的原因。但是写作差三分,听力却过了,本质而言还是写作本身的问题。

这个时候就需要把大小作文分别拿出来比对了,写作差三分,多半是因为小作文。如果你的大作文写的很不好,又抽到了两篇大作文,用一样的套路和模式去写,造成的问题绝对不止3分。所以写作差3分,你需要好好审视一下你的swt到底有什么问题。

下面小编为大家解析一道swt的新真题,这道题的特点是长,信息看起来很多,但是逻辑非常通顺,重要的信息点极其明显。

Primary Carer
Slightly less than one in five carers (19%) were primary carers (475,000 people). That is, they were the main carer of a person who was limited in carrying out the core everyday activities of mobility, communication or self-care. Both primary carers and the larger group of other carers (close to 2 million) contribute to the wellbeing of older people and people with disabilities.

However, because they care for people who otherwise would have difficulty carrying out basic everyday activities, there is particular interest in primary carers: in the contribution they make, their wellbeing, labour force experiences, motivations and the support they receive in caring.

Primary carers were more likely than other carers to be assisting someone who lived in the same household (81% compared with 76%). As with caring as a whole, the likelihood of being a primary carer increased with age to peak at age 55-64 years, where one in twenty people were primary carers. However, rather than then declining, the likelihood of being a primary carer remained at around this level among the older age groups. Consequently, primary carers had a somewhat older age profile than other carers. The median age of primary carers was 52 years, compared with 47 years for other carers.

Primary carers were more likely than other carers to be female (71% compared with 50%) and less likely to be in the labour force (39% compared with 60%). Women not in the labour force were by far the largest single group among primary carers (44%). In contrast, men employed full-time were the largest single group among other carers (25%). Consistent with their lower labour force participation, primary carers had lower personal incomes than other carers (a median gross income of $237 per week compared with $327 per week) and were more likely to have a government pension or allowance as their main source of income (55% compared with 35%).

这篇文章非常长,每一段都有一个topic,但是理论上来说,每一段的topic都非常好找,综合来讲这是一个很简单的swt,大家千万不要被它的篇幅和出现的大量的数字所迷惑。

段一:中心句——Primary carers contribute to the wellbeing of older people and people with disabilities。

这一段是个总起,讲述了primary carer的作用和对社会的贡献。

段二:中心句——However, …, there us particular interest in primary carers.

However这个词是swt里面的一个重中之重的信号点,转折后面的信息往往是非常重要的,紧跟着however后面的信息是一定需要大家仔细阅读的。这里必须要注意的是,重点到particular interest就可以了,后面去解释这些interest详细说明的东西,都不重要!

段三:中心句——Consequently,primary carers had a older age profile than other carers.

看到consequently这个词,大家就知道这个是在下结论了,所以后面的结论很重要!

段四:中心句——Female,government pension or allowance

最后一段讲述primary carer大部分都是女性,收入主要来源政府补贴。

下面来看看文波的老师们为大家提供的答案:

With great contributions to the wellbeing of the elderly and the disabled made by primary carers and other carers, particular interest has been raised towards primary carers, whose major features are older age profile, more female participants, lower personal income and higher reliance on government pension or allowance.

这么一分析,大家是否觉得要想拿到写作8炸,必须要攻克的难题就是swt呢?
