When I was studying for my CELPIP exam I got material from them. Unfortunately, I can not put the PDF to the public because it has a watermark with my personal email. But I can put you here what it says.

CELPIP's twentieth-fifth error as they state:

The term register means the correct use of language for a specific purpose, within a given social situation. Typically, register relates to formality or the degree of "proper" English that we attempt to use, and it is closely related to "tone". For example, when we communicate with strangers, we often try to speak or write more carefully than when we interact with friends or family members. As well, business and purchasing situations usually call for a more formal, less casual register.

CELPIP test takers are marked on their use of tone (level of formality) in spoken and written responses. Therefore, test takers need to decide what level of formality is appropriate for the situation. The most common way to control register is through word choice. The table below shows the difference between some low-register terms (less formal) and high-register ones. In formal testing, it is better to choose a more formal language.

CELPIP's twentieth-third error as they state:

Homonyms are words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings. An example is "none" (zero) and "nun" (a holy woman). These two words are pronounced exactly the same, but as you can see, their meaning and spelling are different.

Malapropisms are words that are frequently mistaken for other words because they look and sound somewhat similar. Malapropisms often result in nonsensical and humorous errors. An example is, "My aunt is in a comma." A "comma" is a punctuation symbol; this person means to say that her aunt is in a "coma"(is unconscious).

Mistakes with homonyms and malapropisms are common in the CELPIP Writing Test. Sometimes this problem occurs because of overreliance on the Spell Check feature. Remember, the computer can only determine if a word is incorrectly spelled. It cannot tell you if you've used the wrong word. Sometimes, this word choice error is the result of a problem with spelling or typing. Test takers either don't know the correct spelling of a word and guess incorrectly, or they type the wrong word. Eighter way, an improper word is used.

CELPIP's twentieth-fourth error as they state:

A common error that occurs both in the CELPIP Writing and Speaking Tests is the tendency to for some test-takers to clutter their responses with irrelevant and repetitious words and phrases. The use of redundancies can create a barrier to communication and cause the test-taker to lose marks.

There are three types of redundancies that commonly affect CELPIP test-takers. First, there are redundant phrases such as twelve midnight or won a victory. The second type occurs when a word is used repeatedly in a sentence when a synonym could .easily be substituted. For example, "As a supervisor in this company, you supervise your staff members" Here, the word manage would be a better choice in the second phrase. Finally, the repeating of nouns in multiple simple sentences when sentence combinations and pronouns could be used.
