Re: GRE Analytical Writing Tips

Here I am providing you some tips. Follow it and get more marks.

The essay section, also known as the Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA), is actually consists of two essays:
The Issue
The Argument
Candidates are allowed 30 minutes for each essay. Both test ability to formulate a cogent thesis statement, which you must defend over the course of several paragraphs.

You should follow this pattern:

Write Essays:
By simply writing often you will be able to write with greater command and facility. With diligent practice, words will not seem submerged deep in your hippocampus, but will spring to life on the page.
Don’t forget to outline/brainstorm:
You must think about what you are going to write before you write. When practicing for the GRE, you must avoid this tendency and instead spend a few minutes coming up with a roadmap (either in your head or on the computer screen). At first this step will slow you down and you will want to go back to the old method. Be patient. Once you become adept at outlining, the essay will write itself.
Spend lots of time editing your practice essays:
Though you won’t get much of an opportunity to edit your essay test day, sedulously editing your practice essays will make you more aware of your mistakes, both grammatical and logical. Correcting these mistakes will not only help you anticipate them in the future, but will also make the writing and logic in your future essays clear.

Constantly read sample essays:
By reading other students’ essays, you will develop a sense of what ETS is looking for. You’ll also be able to better judge your own essays. Throughout practice sessions you should keep tweaking your essays, so they get closer and closer to the next score up. So if you started at a ‘3’, then focus on getting to a ‘4.’

Improve grammar:
ETS explicitly states that it is looking for the quality and clarity of thought, and not grammar per se. Yet the two are closely related. So if you struggle to articulate something–and in doing so break a grammatical rule (or three!)–you will sacrifice clarity. Even minor grammatical errors (faulty pronouns, subject/verb agreement) will mar the overall quality of your writing.
