Supporting arguments :

4- literature keeps morality alive in a society.

5- literature provides knowledge about different cultures and civilizations.

CONCLUSION :- Summary of essay

( I wrote an almost similar outline. There are some some points missing. I wrote 17 arguments.)

I guess very few people opted this topic.
This is most agreed upon understanding that one can never negate the essay topic except when topic is given in form of a question. This topic is not a question and my opinion is that one HAS to write in favor of this topic as opposed to writing against it, which you explicitly did in your thesis statement.......

Thanks for your kind reply. I have reas that many csp's have negated the topic given. As you can see no one has agreed to the statement that feminism is not a third world issue. Every one has written against statement. I found it very difficult to prove the statement given, so I wrote against it and gave valid proofs. Fingers crossed.

I dare to differ from your statement on the basis that last year when i attempted, i specially put this question on the forum and there was unanimous consensus on this issue that topic statement MUST NOT be opposed in your essay stance.... You HAVE to write ON the given topic, not AGAINST it......

As you must have seen there was a topic in the paper posing QUESTION to the candidate that " is world moving toward globalization?" (something like that), now here you can take either positive or negative stance..... However, topic taken by you asked you to prove that Literature IS lonely place of idealist......

The thing you could do was to chose another topic with whom you could comply.....

However, when result will announce... Please share your marks in this thread so we could get the concrete idea of whether we can negate the topic or not.....

You wrote a decent outline. Hopefully, you may pass. By the way, what is your educational background? BA in Eng Literature?

This essay can pass if candidate avoided major grammatical errors and kept a proper structure.
And Faiza is right to some extent, one should not try to go against the statement if it is not clearly indicated as examiner's intention to draw diverging stances from candidates. But if one opts to write against a statement, one needs to have arguments twice as strong as the one writing in favor.

I think, one should not take risk in this kind of exam in the first place.... WHAT IF you have written essay worth 90 marks.... but examiner reject it because you wrote against it...... it is really a colossal risk....

Brother I am an ACCA affiliate. I was expecting an essay on literature and I was fully prepared to write one . I read a book contemporary essays by syed jamal shah IRS. Karimdad chugtai PAS also recommended this book. I just followed his pattern, he has negated the statement of essays in his book. Every one who has opted feminism is not a third world issue has negated the statement. But, I think Faiza has a very valid point and I hope I just get through this time. I would blame this book if I fail to qualify. People are making money out of aspirants , they are recommending books of their friends. I would urge all aspirants to only read quality books. Thanks
