What is an optional essay, and does my institution require it?

The American Literature, Analyzing and Interpreting Literature, College Composition Modular and English Literature exams have optional essays that may be required by some colleges and universities.  These essays are scores by faculty at the colleges and universities that require them.  OTC does NOT grade or require these optional essays.  If you are taking any of the above exams and have questions about whether your need to take an optional essay, you must contact the institution that will receive your scores.
