One of the most difficult aspects of writing successful essays is meeting the strict formatting requirements of your college. The formatting of your essay may be nearly as important to a teacher as the content is. If your teacher or professor gives you specific formatting guidelines, you should follow them. However, if no guidelines are set, you have several different options for formatting your paper.
When you're not using a title page, generally your name, the course name, professor or teacher's name and the due date are placed at the upper left hand corner of the first page. Below that should be your title centered. Your essay begins after skipping one line below the title.
When using a separate title page, the title is the first information on the page and horizontally centered at about the top third of the page. Leave the center of your page empty. Other title elements may be double or single-spaced and may be either centered or left aligned in the final
third of your title page. The essay title should be in the same font type and size as the rest of your essay and should not be bolded, italicized or underlined.
Formatting text you should use the standard margins of 2.5 cm on the top and bottom margins and 3 cm on the left and right margins. Use a standard font such as "Times New Roman" size 12. Print your essay on only one side of paper. Use standard white paper (210 X 197mm). The main purpose of every paragraph is to show the connection between your judgements and thesis. However, it makes things a lot clearer if you spell this out in at least one of your paragraph lines. When used, a separate title page is not numbered. The first page of text is page 1 and may be numbered at the bottom center, in the upper right hand corner, or left unnumbered. Number subsequent pages in the upper right hand corner of each page. Page numbers should be numbers only.
If you have used outside sources to gain information on your essay, you need to include a works cited page of the sources you used at the end of your paper. The appropriate method of listing your sources depends on the type of publications you used in researching your topic. The format of the works cited page also varies according to the style of citation used within your text.
