In the writing exam, it can be easy to make claims that are generally true, but NOT always true. This can limit your score for Task Achievement to a 7.0 (which I know for most people won’t be a problem, but for some test-takers an 8.0 in TA can be the difference between a 6.5 and a 7.0!) So, how can you avoid over-generalising?! HEDGING!!!
