3 TIPS ... TO GET A BETTER MARK FOR YOUR COLLEGE ESSAY

First, have a framework in mind. The marker will be looking for coherence and logic in your written text.  You may like to organise your thoughts and ideas using a mind map before developing your framework. Think of the big picture structure and then slot in your topics, findings and conclusions.

Second, do your research. But, do not plagiarise or overuse quotes. Time re-expressing phrases in a considered way is well-spent as it improves your comprehension and gives a fresh feel to your work. It also allows you to insert your interpretation and nuances into the written piece. 

Thirdly, do refer to your college or University Department for advice on referencing or bibliography standards. Compliance to these standards is usually expected and not negotiable. Some Universities publish summaries of the major standards. Edit-For-Me.com has a link outlining the commonly used American Psychological Association standard for example.
