- Practice writing essays and get feedback before taking the test. The more you practice and prepare, the fresher the structure of a good essay will be in your mind.
- Carefully read the instructions so you are clear on what is required in your response. Underline words that help you understand what you need to include.
- Before you begin to type in your response, jot down an outline of the structure of an essay if that will help you to include all the parts of a good essay. Write down notes that come to you as you read the essay question. Write a rough first draft on paper, then revise your thoughts for final essay.
