    As much as possible, quantity over quality. If you write as much as possible, you'll end of saying some good things in that pile of s*** that is your essay. It works for me at least.

    Well it's really quality over quantity, and it depends on the size of your handwriting, but my teacher said that on average you should be aiming for around:
    3 pages for AIC
    1-2 for each OMAM question

    It's not about how much you can write. It's about how many points/paragraphs you can make. You're supposed to have at least three points for each question (OMAM and AIC) so that you can spend 15 minutes on three paragraphs in each section

    You could write 3 instead of 4 but it's always the quality of your work instead of quantity

    Ive been taught to do 3 'big idea' paragraphs (basically 3 PEEL paragraphs) for my eng lit. This takes up about 1.5-2 pages for AIC questions. It really is about quantity rather than quality.
