Guys, how to write a good essay? What are your tips? 

1) Make sure that whatever you write is on topic.

2) Make sure you only write on topic stuff.

3) Did I mention stay on topic?

 

You only get marks for on topic material, the rest, no matter how brilliant, is a waste of effort.

To reiterate: understand what is asked of you. If the paper says, for example, "Compare and contrast....", understand what those two words mean and apply only them. Here's some pointers, using this common question theme as an example, for the way to approach a question.

Get these three points clear:

What is the objective of the essay?

Who are your audience?

What is the message?

Write the answers to these questions on a post it note that you keep in front of you while you write. Reflect on it frequently.

 

Also, employ the standard teaching method: tell people what you are going to tell them;  tell them it;  tell them what you have told them.
