    Okay its not exactly A Levels, but its a level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship. So I have a **** tonne of coursework to do, and Im aiming to get it done by the end of May so it gives time for my tutor to get back to me with any pointers.
    I currently have 6 units to do, but once i get strted on one, my writing goes haywire and i forget what im writing
    Many apprentices complete their work in bulletpoints and short sentences, but I prefer the essay style, and have been told thats fine.
    The main issue is that I repeat the same words or phrases a lot. Ive been looking up synonyms and antonyms but none ever seem to fit.

    TL;DR What are your writing tips

    Plan, Plan, Plan.

    It seems like a waste of time, but if your writing goes off topic then its perfect to help you. You don't have to write much, just enough to know what you will write in the essay.

    You could also colour code the sections of your plan: point (green), explaining point (yellow), evidence(red), keywords (pink) and link* (purple)
    *(link back to the question/point but without repeating too much.)

    This will help you not to repeat sections (you do not need to repeat the explanation more than once

    If you repeat yourself maybe consider you do not need to. Just make it clear what you are reffering to.

    Hope this helps. I'm not taking the same subject as you but I am familiar with writing essays.
