    I plan to go for the whole write anything I can think of approach.

    Do you think that this is a good idea... I mean il lose my marks for order and coherance most likely but if i get down 13 valid points thats 13 marks yeah?

    Or if i start to dribble on will i be actually losing myself marks?

    the only worry I have is that we only get like 90 minutes?

    not much time really... :eek:

    like i said in another thread...do a brainstorm first...write an introduction..put everything from the brainstorm into the essay and im sure u'll pick some stuff up and write alot more than u expect... write a conclusion.. and u'll likely to score highly...just that layout will get u 2 marks on its own.

    Piece of advice from Caroline

    Open the paper
    Turn to the essay
    Write down everything that comes into your head
    Do structured questions
    If you think of anything more scribble it down
    Finish structured questions
    Order your ideas into a plan
    Write the essay
