CAEL Sample Writing

Sample Writing Section (45 minutes)

You will have 45 minutes to complete the writing task and need to write one page.

Here is a writing sample like the one you might see on your CAEL exam:

Instructions:  You have 45 minutes to write an essay agreeing or disagreeing with the following statement:

In spite of certain dangers, genetic engineering will become a common practice in the near future.

Use the information from the readings and the lecture to help you organize and plan your essay.

Remember:   Please write at least 1 page.

DO NOT COPY DIRECTLY FROM THE READING ARTICLES. If you wish to use one or two sentences, please use quotation marks (“…”).

You are advised to spend 15 minutes planning your essay and 30 minutes writing. (Space, approximately twenty lines, is provided on the actual test.)

When you buy the CAEL practice test, you will see a sample essay here.
