• Ensure that your sources are clearly and properly cited

Writing (20 marks)

• Write a coherent, organised and well-integrated essay.

• Ensure proper grammar, spelling, sentence structure, and adherence to style guidelines.

Suggested Approach

Write this essay in the form of an opinion-editorial (op-ed). Use personal pronouns such as “I”

to convey your researched (and citable) observations and opinions. Hence, the essay has to be

organised to allow the argument to come through clearly and coherently to the reader. The

essay has to adopt basic formality, i.e. presented in whole and structured sentences.

The core components of the essay are:

Introduction. Usually one paragraph. States your claim/argument, with a brief outline of the

supporting reasons or rationale for taking the position you have chosen. *If there is a question,

make sure your stated position directly addresses the question asked. Below is a sample

introductory paragraph based on this TMA question.

In the speech, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said: “But if we succumb to the temptation to

close our doors, we will surely end up hurting ourselves. Our economy will stagnate,

Singaporeans will have fewer rather than more job opportunities, and the country’s long-term

prospects will be endangered.” (Lee, 2022). I agree with this part of the speech to a certain

extent as there are drawbacks of not wanting to open Singapore’s economy to the rest of the

world. However, I do feel there are certain consequences of immigration that need to be taken

into consideration. A point I would like to raise is that we need to carefully manage the flow of

immigration into Singapore. Using recent reports of tensions between Singaporeans and non-

Singaporeans, I argue that a lot of work is required in order to balance the needs of the national

economy whilst maintaining societal harmony.

Body. Paragraphs developing your outlined reasons or rationale in the introductory paragraph,

with relevant and clearly substantiated examples. The PEEL principle may be useful to follow:

• Point (specific point / argument you want to make)

• Providing an Example for that point or argument

• Explaining why the example is relevant to the point / argument you are making, and

• Link it back to your overarching argument your essay is making.
