Sitting down in front of a blank screen or empty piece of paper can be daunting. These tips can help you write a good essay...
- Reading the question through multiple times
- Underlining key words and phrases
- Looking at each part of your essay plan in turn and thinking about how it relates to the question
- Rereading the question regularly when writing to make sure you aren't drifting away from it
If you decide to add, remove or move around points when you come to write your essay, that's OK - the plan is there to help you, not to tie you down.
