Overtype your essay here. No subtitles. Maximum 1,000 words. Please note that 1,000 words is equivalent to less than two pages of writing in this font, paragraph layout and page set up. Nothing will be marked beyond the first two pages of writing. References count as part of the word count total.
Please remember the essay has to have a purpose, and your approach should be to use facts (from evidence from references) to support your main and subsidiary ideas. It is your ideas, and the way they are supported, which will be marked, together with the way you express them in English. See the marking criteria in the brief.
1,000 words are not many words. Every word needs to add to the meaning and support your argument. As much as anything else, it is an exercise in writing succinctly.
Please print double sided if you can. Otherwise, staple the two pages of your submission together in the top left hand corner and submit in the normal way, making sure your occurrence number is clearly visible on the front submission sheet. Thank you.
