When you are preparing for your exam, you can write a few thematic essays to get an idea of what you will encounter on the exam. You would want to practice writing papers that relate to what you may have to write about for the exam. Having a list of possible topics that may appear on your exam gives you the opportunity to practice in a real life situation so that you are as prepared as you can be.

Choose one and then write about it. Then take that paper and edit it and have others edit it to see where you can improve your skills. You can continue that process until you feel comfortable with the assignment.
