Language should be as clear and straightforward as possible. • Use the conclusion to provide a succinct summary, draw your themes together and demonstrate how you have answered the question. • Ensure that your spelling, grammar and punctuation are as good as possible and your essay is formatted and referenced correctly for your department. • Develop a better essay structure by making focused notes. Have the essay question in front of you whilst you read, and only record the information which is directly relevant. • Imagine somebody asked you to summarise, in no more than a few sentences, the main argument of your essay. If you can answer that question confidently, you’re probably on the right track. • Use essay-planning to help you map out a structure and prioritise the points you want to develop and the evidence you are going to use. • Set yourself an early deadline for producing the first draft, so there is plenty of time for review and improvements. • Use the introductory paragraph to clarify what you understand by the question and outline what the essay will cover, so that the structure of the essay is made clear to the reader. • Study skills consultations  • Skills workshops  • Study guides & online resources  • Maths help
