    I am a first year University student currently studying History and I am just wondering how long it takes you to write an essay. The majority of my essays are around 2000 words long. I know that I could personally complete a 2000 word essay within one day if I put my mind to it. But procrastination is my downfall. How long does it take you to complete an essay?

    It really depends on how much you need to reference, and how much learning you’ve done about the topic before hand.

    Anywhere between 2-4 hours if I know the content, to about 15-20 if I’m reading around the topic.
