GUIDANCE ON THE REQUIRED FORMAT OF THE ACADEMIC ESSAYS:
1. Must start the essay as “In this essay i am going to argue that…”
2. You should tell the reader in your Introduction very clearly what your answer will be and tell them how your essay is to be structured to present your answer.
3. Having told the reader in the Introduction explicitly what your answer to the question is, your essay should be logically structured to develop your argument. Organise the main part of your essay into 3 or 4 sections, tell the reader in your Introduction what these sections are, and link these sections to your overall argument. Remind the reader at the start of each new section how the argument is progressing.
