1. Meanings are not restricted by the source language patterns
2. Meaning should be conveyed accurately with no misinterpretation or
misleading language
3. Be aware of the notion register!
4. Ensure to not losing certainty of meaning in the source text
5. No free translation
6. Do not use everyday language
7. Do not look at the model answer unless you have completed each

Examination Report Components Required examination
workpapers as outlined in the table below, form the basis of the
examination report. Additional workpapers, checklist, and/or
examiner-developed documents may be included, at the
discretion of the examiner. This auxiliary information should
provide in-depth information concerning problem areas or

may (present tense) when talking about a current situation
might (past tense) when talking about an event that happened in
the past.
I may go home early if Im tired. (present tense)

In practice, this distinction is rarely made today and the
two words are generally interchangeable:

Language Point : May/Might
But there is a distinction between may have and might
have in certain contexts.
If the truth of a situation is still not known at the time of speaking
or writing, either of the two is acceptable:
By the time you read this, he may have made his decision.
If the event or situation referred to did not in fact occur, it's better
to use might have:
The draw against Italy might have been a turning point, but it didn't turn out
like that.
Language Point : May/Might
