How do you write a essay "properly" as I have followed my teacher's guidelines and still get M aiming for E *top mark (New Zealand marking schedule)????
I have moved your topic to eNotes' Essay Lab. There you will find many hundreds of helpful tips on every aspect of essay writing. It is good to see a student like yourself who is so highly motivated to master the difficult art of writing "proper" essays, and I'm sure you will succeed. Please click on the reference link below to get to eNotes' Essay Lab and then refer to the Q&A section which will cover every possible aspect of writing good essays and getting top marks. It would be impossible to explain how to write a perfect essay in one answer to one question (even if I knew how to write a perfect essay!). Naturally, it would be a good idea for you to read some of the best essayists--especially the best contemporary essayists.
