When you’re writing, it’s only natural to worry about what the examiner wants to see. But this puts you in a defensive, fear-based position, focusing on what you don’t know instead of what you do.
The examiner doesn’t have a pre-determined list of expectations, and they would rather read about what you want to show (not what you think they want to see).
If you focus on what you’re good at and interested in, then it’s easier to write, nicer to read and easier to defend (because choosing what to write about is the same as choosing what you defend).
