Personal Writing TAQ1 1st or 3rd person??

Post by Janeybabes »

Need help!

In the Grade descritors its saying that we should write in the 3rd person, but the question asks for our skills and experiences. So can we write in the 1st person for this part?

I have emailed my tutor but wanted to get this written up hopefully tonighht or in the morning so thought I would as here as he may not get back to me for a day or so?

Thanks

Jane

Hi Jane,

Typically you would write all essays in the 3rd person, unless it specifies otherwise. In this instance you are permitted to transition from 3rd to 1st person as it's asking you to include your own skills and experiences when discussing the positives and negatives of the profession you wish to enter.

I did this and got a distinction overall so it's definitely allowed.

Hope this helps.
