I need to score an 8 in writing to be eligible to immigrate to Australia.
I've already scored 7 in the academic writing test (for the skills assessment) and am now wondering if there is a difference in marking criteria for the general and academic test.
For example is the general test maybe a bit more lenient?
Many thanks in advance!
