新SAT写作如何得高分,教你6招轻松搞定

486人浏览 2018-07-03 分享到|

  众所周知,SAT或ACT考试成绩在美国大学申请中占有一定的地位,尽管美国的大学并不是唯分数论,但是对于要求提供SAT或ACT考试成绩的学校来说,申请者如果能取得较好的SAT或ACT成绩就会为申请增加成功的砝码。

  SAT2在考取美国高中时不是必须的,有些好的大学也不要求,但是如果不考SAT2高中毕业想申请好的大学时就会受到很大限制。

  首先,要搞清楚所要申请学校的要求。并非所有的美国大学都要求有SAT2成绩,相当一部分普通大学和少量名校都不需要(NOT REQUIRED)考SAT2。如果你申请的学校都是不需要SAT2成绩的,而你备考TOEFL、SAT1的时间又很紧张,那么就没有必要去考SAT2。但大部分的美国名校是需要有SAT2成绩的,一般是需要两门或三门。在需要SAT2成绩的学校中,对具体科目的要求又不尽相同,有的学校没有规定科目,有的则给出了相当程度的指定,如加州理工学院(CALTECH)就要求所有申请者必须提供SAT2的数学2和科学类中的一门(即物理或化学或生物)成绩。

  SAT考试中写作虽然不算入总分,却是招生官考核学生的重要标尺,如何能让新SAT写作吸引招生官的眼睛,在招生官那拿到高分,是同学们非常关心的话题,下面小编整理了6招吸引招生官眼球的方法,都是招生官的最爱,也是写作中的万能例子,什么题材的都可以用,同学们都来学起来吧!


新SAT写作如何得高分,教你6招吸睛


  1、多运用动词和主动语态

  在文章中把一个主要的名词换成动词

  例:Verb to be :the use of leaf blowers before 8 am is a violation of local noise abatement laws.

  Action verb :the use of leaf blowers before 8 am violates local noise abatement laws.

  用动词替代句子中的某一个重要的名词或形容词

  例:Verb to be :The quarterback’s wretched performance was a disgrace to his team.

  Action verb :The quarterback’s wretched performance humiliated his team.

  如果不知如何更改动词,可以重新整理语句形式

  例:Verb to be :Jamie was happy to be part of the all-star soccer team.

  Action verb : Being a part of the all-star soccer team thrilled Jamie.

  主动语态

  例:Passive Voice :the main idea for my essay was stated as the first sentence in the first paragraph.

  Active Voice : I stated the main idea of my essay in the first sentence in the first paragraph.

  Passive voice : money for the new recreation building was raised quickly.

  Active voice: the recreation committee quickly raised money for the new building.

  2、使用简单词汇

  在写作中,有的同学习惯使用一些例如 ugly as sin, pretty as a picture之类的词汇。在这里,小编建议大家不要使用这类词汇。因为在使用这些词汇的时候,会给读者一种陈词滥调、平淡无味的感觉,更有可能使读者误会你本身的意思。

  General :I was shaking in my boots before the interview,but I was happy as a lark when the personnel manager offered me the job.

  Improved :I was terrified before the interview, but I was ecstatic when the personnel manager offered me the job.

  3、在文章中使用specific words

  少general words,多增加specific images。这两者怎么区别呢?我们来举个例子,car就是general words,因为车的种类有很多,而Benz SUV 就是specific words。在考试的中,多使用specific words可以帮助把物体解释的更清楚,读者也会获得更多的信息,使他们对你的文章更方便了解。

  例1: General :Tom got into his car and drove off.

  Specific :Tom leaped into his SUV and roared off.

  例2:General: My coach illustrates the point about playing fairly.

  Specific: My basketball coach, Ms Berry, illustrates the essay- ist’s point about playing fairly.

  例3:General: At the end of the day, the workmen walked up the snow-covered road.

  Specific: At the end of the day, the tired workmen trudged wearily up the snow-covered road.

  4、使用简单的语句

  写作的时候,尽量的使用简单易懂的词汇语句,可以使读者更清楚的明白你的立场和你文章的目的。要记住,SAT写作不是考察你的生词量,而是在考察你是否能将你的想法通过文字的方式传递给读者。

  例 :To facilitate input by the maximum number of potential purchasers, questionnaires were designed and posted well in advance of the launch of the promotional marketing campaign.

  Improved :Before we began advertising, we designed and mailed a marketing survey to find out what customers were looking for.

  通过比较,我们可以清楚的明白,上面的句子,使用了一些不必要的词汇,而导致句子看上去繁琐难懂。下面的句子,经过编改,变得简单易懂。

  5、避免使用俚语

  SAT的写作,要求的是一篇有专业性的写作,而不是一篇日记或随笔,所以俚语不应该在SAT的考试中出现。就好像是高考作文中,考生把“我要去…”写成“俺要去…”加有地方方言的语言方式。

  例1:Brian’s mother reprimanded him for blowing his physic test.

  Improved :Brian’s mother reprimanded him for failing his physic test.

  同样的,考生在写作的时候,也应该尽量避免太多学术性强的语言。批卷的老师很有可能并不像你一样是个电脑高手。他或她可能只明白一些初级的电脑词汇,对于那些技术性强的词汇,也许一窍不通。

  例2:Close-support, transport, and reconnaissance assistance is provided by the S-3X helicopter, which is the most cost effective in a crane configuration.

  Improved :The S-3X helicopter provides support, transportation, and reconnaissance. However, the helicopter is most cost effective when it works as a crane.

  6、合并短句,截断长句

  合并短句可以让你的文章更连贯,读者阅读的时候思路也会更清晰。

  例1:The glee club held a fund-raiser, the basketball team also held a fundraiser.

  Improved sentences :The glee club and the basketball team held fundraisers (compound subject).

  例2:The most valuable player on the basketball team will give the graduation speech. She is the star of this year’s musical.

  Improved sentences: The most valuable player on the basketball team, who is also the star of this year’s musical, will give the graduation speech (appositive).

  例3:The wide receiver ran down the field. He caught the winning touchdown pass.

  Improved sentences: Running down the field, the wide receiver caught the winning pass (modifying phrase).
