When approaching answering an essay, first look at the question. Read it through several times. It may seem obvious, but you have to answer the question, not plonk down everything you know.

Most of the question has a quotation or a statement and then is phrased: "How far do you agree?" or "Discuss". This means you have to respnd to the statement or quotation. Do you agree? Yes or No. Your essay is making an argument to affirm your opinion.
