Hello! I am student from Argentina and I'm sitting for the FCE this December. But I have a doubt about this and maybe you could help me... In the Writing part, do we have to write in CAPITAL LETTERS? Or can we write in the kind of letters that we want? My teacher was not sure about it so I thought it'd be better if I asked by myself...
I hope you answer to me soon. Thanks!
