I’ve been doing Philosophy and Ethics for more than a year at A -Levels and my highest marks within a Philosophy and Ethics essay is 28/40 I’m a bit worried as to how to write a great essay worthy of 30+ marks but I don’t know what to do.
I can write for more than 4 pages giving all the content that I know and following the essay structure but still to no avail. I’d be really happy and grateful if anyone can give me some tips as to give some tips to improve. Lastly if anyone can give a model essay with some commentary/analysis that’ll also be very helpful

Focus on the essay question. Briefly plan your essay in your head beforehand. You should always include a short introductory paragraph. Post your essay here and I can provide feedback on it for you to take on board in addition. Another tip have a summary at the end listing all used reference sources as well.
Use your class notes as brain fodder and as the basis of your essay too. Make a note of the number of marks and also pay attention to any time limits. Ensure that your arguments are trustworthy and solid. All need to be able to stand up to criticism etc. Try writing a draft beforehand to check for any spelling errors etc. Finally leave out any irrelevant facts. Good luck to you. When doing your research, stick to sensible reliable reference sources and avoid dubious ones.
