Essay planning


Planning your essay is the first important step in the writing process. Without a plan you could end up with an unstructured essay that marks poorly.

This tutorial walks you through how to analyse and understand the assessment task, read and take notes, plan through mind mapping and finally develop a linear plan to base your essay on.

Organising and planning an essay involves 3 steps:

  1. Analyse the task
  2. Read and take notes
  3. Plan.
