Default Essay Paper Tips Required

AOA, I would like to ask some questions about the essay paper, so that you can help separate myth from facts.

Firstly, what is the minimum acceptable essay word count, I know that the paper requires 2500 words, but what is the least number of words deemed acceptable by the examiner

Secondly, does illegible handwriting really cause a dent in the marks scored ? I have heard that poor handwriting can lead to negative scoring.

Thirdly, while attempting the paper should we opt for headings of separate ideas or should we focus more on making paragraphs.

1 . Word count depends on quality of your material . It is being said that if you have written a high quality essay then 1500 to 2000 words may be acceptable depending on the paper checker and your ideas that you have provided in your essay .

2 . Neat and clean handwriting will fetch you better marks definitely . But , it is seen that it doesnot matter alot as some persons having poor handwriting also passed an essay , But , definitely , it is not a good idea to write poorly if you can write neatly . So , i am not saying that good handwriting but neat handwriting must have a good effect on paper checker .

3 . As far i know ''No headings'' . You would have to write an outline at the start of an essay to make your idea clear to the paper checker .
