    In the exams ( English), my teacher said if we did that we'd get more marks. Is it possible with the time we're given?? I kind of struggle and my mind gets blocked., so I end up most of the time writing one page only which is guess is not enough???

    Got any tips?? Help??

    Oh to clarify I have access arrangements, so i use a laptop- but even then i can mostly write one page. Maybe because i feel so pressured as well??
    Obviously organise first.
    That comes with key notes you jotted down
    and then a thesis
    and then organising your thesis statement, concluding statement, and the body paragraphs
    this should take maybe 20 minutes, as long as you understand the content/material

    then spend the rest of the time constructing your essay :yy:

    I am someone who has pretty perfect note taking skills and then organisation, and then improvisation, so I can slap a paper down pretty quick. Just prepare an outline.

    Honestly, it depends on your ability. The other day we did a mock and had 55minutes and I wrote 5 sides. It depends on you. On a laptop, it will look less because handwriting is far bigger than typing, however you should be much, much faster if you are typing, so I guess it evens out

    Same! Apparently that's why I did really bad in my written paper last year - illegible handwriting :lol:
    Oh God :< I might have to try and write in really big letters so they can tell what I'm writing (A)
