How closely do the people read the essay? What type of grade do they give you for the essay? 1-5? What percentage of the 800 is it?

the essay is read by to people and each one gives the essay a score of 1-6. each score is added together and multiplied by 3.43. the product is then added to your raw score from the multiple choice and then scaled. im really not sure however how closely they read it, but think about it, they have to read thousands of essays allin a short period of time so they probably dont spend much more than about 2 minutes reading it. i think as long as you clearly show what your trying to say and give good examples and dont have too many mistakes you should do well.
