Preparing an essay answer
It is obviously going to make a difference whether you are writing the essay for an examination or as coursework, how many words you are expected to write and – in the case of an examination – how long you are given. For this sample, we are assuming an examination answer of 45 minutes, and a target of 350 words or more, depending on writing speed.
In an examination, give yourself ten minutes to plan, and five minutes to check, your answer. You will have to work quickly in the examination, but it is worth planning carefully when you are practising essays.
