    Using exaggerative words in for and against essay

    Hello,
    I had to do write a for and against essay for my upcoming English exam.
    There were model exams conducted in my school.
    There was a topic given for the essay.
    The topic was use of animals in scientific research.
    So my doubt is that can we use words which seem to be pressurize someone or too advance for my grade( I am in Grade 10)
    For example using words like vengeance, psychological warfare

    I'm afraid I don't understand your question. Can you rephrase it?

    You can use "big words" if you're sure you understand them. Unless you are familiar with them though, it could just look like you are trying too hard. And I wouldn't overdo it. Use the most appropriate word that you are confident using.

    I see that the OP edited the post to give more detail after I posted.

    May I add a (personal) plea to members not to do this? It can make responses to the original question seem silly/pointless/irrelevant. OPs, please rephrase your question in a new post to give the thread coherence/continuity.
