Time: 11am – am It might seem a little counter-intuitive to start writing an essay before you've sourced all your quotes and references, but there's method to our madness.
Writing all 3,000 words in one go is a pretty depressing thought, so anything you can do to break up the workload is a positive step.
What's more, questions that easy at first glance are often the hardest of all.
The very fact that they're short and worded in a very straightforward way means you're probably expected to construct a much more original and complex essay to respond to it.
Time management is pretty important when you have 24 hours before a deadline.
Assign yourself chunks of time to reach certain milestones, as this breaks down the big daunting task and provides extra motivation every time you tick off one of the relatively easy mini-tasks.We're sorry, this computer has been flagged for suspicious activity.If you are a member, we ask that you confirm your identity by entering in your email.Next, decide your approach – how are you going to tackle the question?It's your essay and as long as you keep relating your arguments to the question you can take it in any direction you choose.Time: am – 11am Once you've decided on your approach to answering the question, you should be able to form a pretty solid plan for the body of the essay.Write out three to five key points that you want to make in your overall argument, and underneath each one, use bullet points to list all the information, supporting arguments (and, better still, any rebuttals you have to popular counter-arguments) or quotes you already have for each point.Don't worry too much about making it sound amazing at this point – just get stuck into introducing your argument and telling the reader how you will support it.You can go back and make yourself sound smarter later on when you're at the editing stage.You need to be confident that you'll be comfortable and able to focus for as long as possible.Be organised and come equipped with two pens, a bottle of water, any notes you have and some snacks to use as mini-rewards.
