THE ESSAY WRITING TECHNIQUE


INTRODUCTION


Begin your essay with an introduction that briefly describes the concept(s) being discussed (and clarifies any essential vocabulary), your approach to answering the topic, and your conclusion. In a nutshell, jot out the main points of your essay.


Do not just rewrite the question's specifics (this can be tempting in a problem scenario). There is a good chance that you will be given a word count, but you will not be penalised for it!


Tip-Writing (or rewriting) your introduction after concluding is a good idea. So that you may ensure that your beginning correctly summarises the content of your essay, employs consistent vocabulary, and ties into the conclusion.


SUBJECT OF INTEREST


Make an effort to keep your essay's thesis consistent throughout. Decide what you want to say, and don't "sit on the fence" while arguing.


WHERE YOU CAN SUPPORT WITH AUTHORITY


Make use of credible sources to bolster your case. Whenever possible, use statutes and case law to support your arguments. Take into consideration the reader's point of view and make sure you're making a strong case. Arguments that aren't backed up by evidence will not be taken seriously.


ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE WITH INTERESTS


The chance to offer and quickly explain alternative counter-arguments and facts that seem to contradict your line of reasoning should be taken advantage of if your exercise is to "critically analyse" (or some such terminology).


This is a great chance to show off your depth of knowledge and critical thinking ability. The data does not support these counter-arguments. Therefore you should criticize them and explain why. However, resist the urge to be caught in counter-arguments. You must always keep to your consistent argument.


CONCLUDE


Finally, arrive at a logical conclusion that is both concise and unambiguous.


Check-You should double-check. It is your responsibility to ensure that you answer the question exactly as it was asked. To keep from veering off-topic, stick to the terms used in the question.
