5 Summarising text

In this section you will practise writing a summary. Summarising is part of writing assignments. Sometimes in an assignment students are specifically asked to write a summary of something they have read. However, they will need to include summaries of information taken from their readings in most assignments. Therefore, summarising is a very important skill to develop if you are thinking of enrolling on a university course.
