; Spend 5 minutes to choose questions

    ; Start with questions that you are most familiar with

    ; Use 45 minutes to answer a question on average

    ; You can spend more time (45-60 minutes) to answer the questions you are most familiar

    with

    ; Leave 2 lines to add additional materials after each paragraph ; Write

    nd Short intro. (def. Geographical terms, Transition to 2 paragr. + Case studies; must be concise +

    precise)

     Short paragraphs ( 1 pt. in each paragr. + topic sentences)

     Extra points instead of conclusion if time is insufficient ; Draw annotated diagrams to save time; never repeat the key words shown in the figures drawn.
