    Length of Essay? e_bowe

    We were told keep the essay to 2.5/3 pages but just wondering what everyone else is aiming for?

      Tbh, I would aim for more. On a normal a4 pad 3.5 but in the exam paper many 4.5-5. A beginning 4-5 paragraphs and the ending. At the end of the days it's quality though so if you have 2.5-3 very good context then stick with that. For me I'm weak with my content so I waffle for grammar marks

      Ok thanks! It depends on the topic really, if it's quite general I could probably get more. With all that time though I'm sure I could come up with an extra page or so!
