GP Essay Skills - Paper 2 - Vocabulary


- Typically three easy words, and two more challenging ones

- Find most suitable and specific word – to the point to get the point! (Eg. “disseminate” is to “spread widely,” and “swing” is a “drastic/radical change” i.e. paying attention to manner/nature/degree where possible)

- Use contextual cues to help you decipher meaning of the word (eg. “askance” = “doubtfully, suspiciously”)

- Do not use same word in the paragraph

- Use a short phrase if no suitable synonym can be found (Eg. “parrot-cry” is “a mindlessly repeated phrase”)
