We have to choose controlled assessment questions, is this an alright one? I have to write 2,500 words give or take. Is this task difficult? Should I pick a question where it is easier to pick up on marks?

To be honest, it really doesn't matter whether there is a lot of content on the subject in the book, and whether you're quoting enough in your essay. What matters is that the quotations you do choose have a lot on context and linguistic devices to be analysed. Choosing the theme of Women, or Relationships would be a lot easier for 'A Woman of No Importance', but religion also plays a large factor in 'Mrs' Arbuthnots actions, and religion was a large part of Victorian Society. I think its a whole lot more interesting than talking about what everybody else is already mentioning in their essays
Hope this helps and good luck on your coursework

Some basic tips:

  • The question and choice of texts are definitely important. The text you choose should be something you like, or at least find interesting enough to thoroughly analyse it.
  • Don't choose a really abstract question, just keep it simple as it will be easier to keep your essay focussed.
  • Be concise, if you can say the same thing in less words then do so. When editing be really aware of this.
  • Every point you make back it up, give evidence of your argument. You can use critics opinions to do this, quotes, etc.
  • In your introduction include your thesis statement and milestones which mark out what you will be discussing or arguing.
  • Conclusion; don't put any new information in this, simply summarise your points, reiterate your argument and don't use the generic "in conclusion" or similar phrases.
  • Plan thoroughly so you have a nice structure. Ending one paragraph with a point that can lead you onto the next text (which you'll discuss in the next paragraph) creates a nice flow.


I think your question has enough to write about and is interesting.

Hope this helps
