The first step in  writing  a  good   essay  is making sure you completely understand the question posed in your  essay  topic.

Begin researching your topic. Go to your local library to find publications related to your topic and also search the Internet for additional information.

Once you collect enough material to begin, you should plan your  essay . Think about how to assemble all the information you have collected including your your own ideas and interpretations.

Begin  writing  your  essay .  Write  clear sentences which encapsulate the main ideas arising from the information you have gathered, and the ideas you have formed yourself. Start with formulating topic sentences that will begin each argument (paragraph). Try to  write  active sentences with active verbs. Make sure your topic sentences link with the previous paragraphs.

Once you have  written  the body of the  essay  you should then proceed to  write  the introduction to your  essay . Including an interesting fact is a very  good  beginning and may capture the reader’s interest.

After you finish  writing  the introduction you should proceed to your conclusion. Remember that the primary function of the conclusion is to summarize the main points in your  essay , and to confirm your arguments which supported your topic.

Often presentation is worth up to 20% of the allotted marks. Observe correct spelling and grammar and  essay  formatting rules. You may want to use our  essay  marking  service  to help you out with the presentation of your final piece.

Always  write  multiple drafts and make sure your ideas flow from one argument to the next. Never plagiarize! Always keep track of any quotes or citations and include them in footnotes and bibliography. Remember that universities often use computer software that can turn-up plagiarism.
