Academic VS Creative?

*****

Looks like writing a blog to buck up on my English isn't a very bright idea after all.

I suspect that it is too much posting on this blog that caused me to fail on that stupid QET (Q-"something" English Test) because as my professor put it,

"English in university is not like English in secondary school. We do not emphasize on creative writing but rather academic writing".

And what is academic writing in other words?
Boring writing.


Allow me to demonstrate. What i have wrote above is called creative writing.
What i'm about to write below now is called academic writing.


Research have showed that writing on blogs may heighten the risk of a student failing in the QET examination.

According to professor Priscillia Phan, "English in university is not like English in secondary school. We do not emphasize on creative writing but rather academic writing".

Academic writing in other words is defined as boring writing.




Zzzzz.......

  1. Haha~~XD
    If I tell you your second part of this article is still not academic enough, are you going crazy?
    The truth is, academic writing includes citation if you quote someone's words, otherwise it is plagiarism...That's what my tutor tell me about a hundred times during my bridging course here~~I think you are also going to hear that for a hundred times very soon.
    Cannot believe I have to take this boring writing course again...

  3. You will see...
    Very soon...
    I have spent 1.5 year on learning writing academic essay~ And the only words my tutor said to me in the farewell ceremony was still "your expression is still not academic enough"!!!
    One day I will become the editor of "Writing Academic English", and abandon all the loathsome rules!!!=..=

  4. That's just rubbish. Just be yourself, and carry on with your creative writing. I think I know what the Q stands for in QET. It's 'QUESTIONABLE Eng Test'...
