    Hey all,

    I'm desperate for a good essay structure, could you please give me advice in how to get top marks in essays. I really appreciate the help. I've been told I have good understanding but fail in applying it to essay questions. I'm doing A2 Geo at the moment but I am re-taking one AS unit and the exam board is Edexcel. Any advice is appreciated.

    Many Thanks,
    Zubair
