Q. Where do I start my essay or report?

I'm stuck with where to begin


Answer

The starting point to writing a good essay is to have a good understanding of the topic or question.


Look for any task (or instructional) words, such as 'discuss', 'explain' and 'evaluate' these define how many parts there are in your assignment and the sort of essay/report you need to write. You should also find the content words and the limiting words, which specify the scope of the task.

If you are unsure about the meaning of any of the words in the essay/report question, use the Academic Writing Guide or contact your learning support facilitator here
