Well, this is way different from Exams questions, however dealing with tests and quizzes and whatnot is already stressful, now dealing with Essay questions would just break you down and you will feel so much pressure, most of the people would agree that Essays are probably more stressing than tests/exams/quizzes.
Now, writing an essay can be simplified and for this you need to have an understanding of the course and the material, that is the first thing you should know, of course this does not mean you have to be the perfect student, not at all, just having an understanding is enough.
If you are just stating your own opinion on this essay, then more than likely it won’t have a good grade and you will probably have to live with it, you have to pay attention to the material to actually make a decent essay at least.
If you are just stating the facts, and not actually touching each argument in order to show that you have an understanding of the material, then you will be just stating things that are already known, you have to be able to add to the facts by demonstrating that you understand it, not only just saying what it means and actually adding more to it, this would make your essay stronger.
Lastly, despite having evidence, and arguments, you will need a good claim that will hook the reader in this case your Professor, this would just engage the reader from the get go which is a great thing.
In order to have a good essay you don’t necessarily need it to be perfect, but that is why you review everything and check if you have everything that is needed, with that is enough to probably convince the teacher to give you a passing grade, however more than likely you will need to work harder, to get a good grade that you can we proud of.
