Ever notice how some students seem to sail through essay writing assignments, always handing in on time and with a smile rather than overdue essays and bags under the eyes? Ever wondered how they do it?
One technique used by top students the world over is to learn from the essays of others. There's a reason why this approach is endorsed by both teachers and students:
- It familiarises you with the essay formats that are most successful for each subject
- It will give you ideas for your own essays
- It lets you learn from the successes (and mistakes!) of others
- It exposes you to a wider academic sphere than you might be able to access just at your own school/college
If you're preparing for exams or essays your teacher/tutor may well provide you with a handful of "past papers" or essays from other students – as we said this tactic is approved of by teachers worldwide. Unfortunately most institutions can only help you out with the few of these essays.
