Y DOS ÚLTIMOS CONSEJOS:

  1. Resta puntos en selectividad utilizar sólo AND, BUT, SO, BECAUSE. Así que intentad variar de conectores.

2. Resta puntos también un EXCESO de expresiones idiomáticas como las que tenemos arriba. Es decir, que si yo intentase terminar una redacción diciendo “In conclusion, and taking everything into consideration…” eso se puntuaría a la baja.
