I've not been in this forum for awhile it's nice to be back!!! Teachers, please explain me what's the difference between "Descriptive composition" "An essay" and "Discursive composition" I tired to find out this by myself but unfortunately I couldn't figure this out what a shame... By the way I want to know this because tomorrow is very important day for twelfth graders in Lithuania! We are taking an English exam!!! Thanks in advance :up::roll::cool:

If you're taking an exam

  • Good luck!
  • Whoever's arranging the exam may have their own specific definitions.

Compositions are things that have been composed. What has been composed may be called 'an essay' in some cases. There's a lot of overlap.

If a compositon describes something it's descriptive. If it discusses something it's discursive.

PS Tip for tomorrow: read the question!
