How should I structure an A level Spanish essay to achieve a top grade?

A clear structure is highly important if you are looking to get a top grade in A Level Spanish. If you follow the same structure for every essay you write you will get into a routine so that by exam time it will come naturally!

To begin, a short introduction is necessary to outline what you are going to talk about within the essay. It may be useful to briefly contextualise the question here before stating the different themes you will be looking at throughout your essay. 

You should be aiming for 3 main themes which will in effect transfrom into 3 paragraphs. Within each paragraph you should then be looking to make 3 valid and detailed points all related to your main theme. Each point should be backed up by specific examples relating to the book/film/play/author or whatever it may be that you have studied. 

To neatly finish the essay, you should then write a conclusion which aims to answer the initial question. Be careful not to repeat your previous points and instead summarise them with slightly different wording. If you have clearly stated your opinion and answered the original question the reader will be left feeling content as the conclusion ties all of the loose ends together.

If you follow this structure with every A Level Spanish essay you write, coupled with a good vocabulary and knowledge of your topic you should be able to achieve a top grade in A Level Spanish.
