Summarising information exercise

Ethical issues:

Summarising information exercises are used to help a prospective employer assess how good you are at picking out the most important details from a long document. By giving you a short time limit, they also find out how good you are at working to a deadline.

The attached document contains a link to the BBC's online religion and ethics pages. Choose one of the topics, read as much about it as you can in twenty minutes and write a short summary including the key problems and questions. Once you have chosen, you should take no more than ten minutes to produce your summary. You are advised to treat this as a real assessment centre exercise and stick as closely as you can to the time limit.

You may wish to try more than one topic in order to get more practice.
