    Length of essays TK97

    I took up religion as an extra subject and am the only one doing it in my school and am a little confused about essay length. I usually write four to five pages for each question, but considering the exam time I don't know if it is possible to write this much! If anyone could advise me I'd really appreciate it :)

      40 marks... typically 2 pages in half an hour... time keeping is where students go wrong in this subject. make sure to plan your essay and have a strong conclusion and relevant material. how's your coursework coming along?

      Thanks for your help:) Ya coursework booklet complete but I'm 1000 words over the word count so have to do a lot of editing!! Can you draw in extra lines on the coursework booklet?

      My teacher doesn't recommend doing that because examiners have the right to only examine information on the lines of the original booklet. If its a fee extra words I say go ahead buy not like a paragraph. Good luck! What sections are you doing? I'm doing Christianity, world religions and issues of justice and peace

      That's a pity there really isn't a enough space in the booklet. thanks for letting me know though. Ya I'm doing the same except religion and science, even though I doubt I'll have all the sections done by mocks!!
