How long?

2 posts in this topic

Anyone know how much we should be writing for these essays? What's the minimum length I could get away with if my mind goes completely blank!? :lol:

I enquired about the expected length of the essay from veteran candidates as well as examiners and the prevailing view is that it is the breadth rather than the length which is more important. There is no standard length but obviously, covering a topic substantially would mean a substantial length. About 500 words could make a brilliant essay but one could easily fill up 10 A4 sheets ( 1 side only ) and still be OK. More than that would be long and cumbersome and you would be limited by time as well. ::)
