Although time is precious in the exam, it’s well worth spending 5-10 minutes creating a plan for your essay. Use that time to decide what your main points will be and choose the quotations to evidence these points.

Here is a plan we looked at in class. The introduction and first paragraph has been written. To revise, you could write up a paragraph for one of the other points. If you want to share. you can email it to me or post a comment at the bottom of this post.
