Un-PAC the Situation

Sit Tight and Write On!

6 + 9 = 15

This is not a mere number statement. In fact, it is one that is of great significance to all P5 and P6 students. This illustrates the perfect score for the Situational Writing component. And are you ready for a piece of great news?


Yes, it can be done! Even though Situational Writing only takes up 15 marks compared to 40 marks in Continuous Writing, this is THE EASIER Paper 1 component to score in. With the clear-cut technical criteria and overall shorter length of writing, you need to seize your opportunity to score.


Just because something is easier does not mean that no effort is required.

Letters, emails, reports, formal, informal.

What are the formats and how do you make sure that you are writing to answer the question to score? It’s time to Un-PAC The Situation.

“Un-PAC the Situation was well-structured, especially the Step-by-Step Guide to Score which highlighted 8 easy-to-remember steps and the useful notes provided alongside the online course. Walkthrough of the different types of writing also helped to reinforce Jayden’s learning and the additional practices enabled him to apply what he had learnt. Jayden found the videos attention-grabbing and that the Common Errors would aid him in being more mindful of such mistakes.”
