hink carefully about how you structure your essay. You should provide a clear introduction, main body and conclusion. Part of the assignment task is to make decisions about how to organize the information that you will use to answer your question. Is it best to organize your essay into themes? Is it better to argue for and then against a central idea? The choice of structure can often make or break an assignment. The questions ask you to respond analytically to a particular topic. A good place to begin is to interrogate the key concepts involved in the question. If you are asked about “affordability” think about all the ways things are affordable and unaffordable. For whom are they affordable? What does “freedom” mean in the context of people’s working and everyday lives? By providing definitions (potentially several different or competing definitions) and analyzing evaluating which is more appropriate and why you will start to access the higher-grade bands.
