    I've just finished planning my first essay at university.

    This is the question:

    Describe and evaluate two models of memory and consider how these apply to everyday life.

    I've planned it like this:

    - Introduction defining memory, introducing the 2 models (will be quite short)
    - Paragraph 1 describing the first model and how it applies to everyday life
    - Paragraph 2 evaluating the first model
    - Paragraph 3 describing the second model and how it applies to everyday life
    - Paragraph 4 evaluating the second model
    - Conclusion saying overall impression of both models and summing up their usefulness in daily life

    My limit is 1000 words. Is it too A-Level-y? I've structured it like that to make sure I address all parts of the question - describe, evaluate and consider.

    That seems fine - try not to worry too much. The reason "first year doesn't count" is because that's when you'll get the most support and help getting used to what is expected of you.

    If you're worried then schedule a short (10 minute) meeting with your personal tutor to get their input. I'm sure it's fine

    The difference at uni level isn't normally around structure as much as about the sources and referencing you're expected to bring to your work.
