    What do you think is a sufficient number pages of writing or word count for one essay?? [I understand some peoples writing is bigger than others]

    ...It's just, I'm doing model essays which equal to around at least 2000 words each and it seems like far too much?

    What about Intelligence folks? I'm thinking classical conditioning/ evolutionary factors/information processing are most likely to come up. Does anyone have any sample essays on these questions? I hate this topic so much

    and Tinksy I've heard that around 600-700 words is the perfect amount however I wouldn't be able to fit all important/needed information in that so I tend to do 1200ish but then I'm a slow writer so end up not writing everything I know In the exam

    Awh thank you very much and yes I completely understand, 600/700 doesn't seem realistic enough and it's reassuring to know I'm not the only one who writes so slow! I have all the info in my head but kick myself after because I'm not fast enough to bran dribble it on my page in time! haha

    And I'm sorry I can't help with intelligence question as I don't do it myself

    Thanks so the question would be asked in a vague manner which means they wont specify if the want only nature of sleep or only lifespan changes?

    If they ask for nature of sleep, then include lifespan changes and the stages.

    They could theoretically ask for lifespan changes or stages of sleep separately, but in practice this is very unlikely

    toethunder -

    I take it you mean the nature of sleep question that's mentioned with lifespan changes of sleep in the spec? If so, I was told that you first write about the stages of sleep and include lifespan changes of sleep. But I also do need confirmation of this because you're right it is a bit vague
