    It's entirely subject specific. Some science EE's have considerable introductions, with theoretical backgrounds, etc., whilst some mathematics EE's have far smaller intros - same for English EE's. What is your EE on?

    You are referring to the introduction, and not the abstract, right?
    I think that as long as (I'm not an art student, btw) you are able to structure your essay in a manner which covers all of the marked criterea, the size of your introduction would have little impact. Just don't repeat points you've made. Sorry for the lack of help, but mine is in Biology, and I am in the process of cutting it (the introduction) down from 1000 words.

    i've read somewhere that it's good to write introduction at the end, when the essay is finished - would you recommend it?

    Monii, I believe (95% sure) you are referring to the abstract - which they recommend you doing after you finish. Mainly because you also mention your conclusion - something you can't cover very well, when you haven't written it yet. The introduction (I'm again speaking from a science perspective) is meant to introduce the basis of your argument, and define any ambiguous precursors. I know a guy who wrote an 800 word introduction and scored a 35/36 in Chem.
