    I am working towards completing all the requirements to start my MA education credential program. So far I have complete CSET(Subtest 1, 2 and 3 for multiple subjects) and CBEST(English and Math). The only one remaining is writing.

    I have taken the CBEST writing 3 times. The first time I did all 3 so ran out of time, the second time scored 29, and the third time I passed the personal/reflective essay alone and scored 33.

    Usage and Structure/convention are the weakest point. I have read past messages in this forum and working towards improving my writing.

    My difficulty in analytical and argumentative essays are providing examples. What if I don't have any examples to support my point? Is it ok to make up names or scenarios? Since the essay is to show if one can write an effective essay.

    Thanks

    Yes,
    I made up examples with fake names. My tutor said it is OK to make up scenarios.
