Hey, so I'm really good at waffling in essays, I do two essay based subjects Sociology and Philosophy. I don't waffle in philosophy but I seemed to for sociology because theirs so much to write. How do I write short paragraphs without losing marks? Could you give an example? (Doesn't have to be from sociology altho that would help

I think the main thing for sociology is just making sure everything you’re saying is relevant to the question, it’s easy to waffle. I think you just have to practice writing the essays and making sure you’re fully explaining sociological concepts for the question, if you’ve written anything other than concepts, examples and supporting studies then it’s probably waffle.

I'd use a pen?

You seem to have the spelling nailed.

Keep asking yourself, is this relevant to the question? I've gotten full marks on 25-mark history essays just by writing two sides of A4. You need to be able to tell when you're writing something irrelevant. You also should have faith that what you've explained is enough - you don't need to use every bit of evidence under the sun to prove your point, it's not a thesis.
