Top 10 essay mistakes
Here's the things that students most commonly do to lose them marks:
The student fails to answer the question or neglects part of the question. Usually every fact given in the question will be relevant so consider each in turn and look at whether they give rise to any particular issues.
The student fails to address what is being asked of them - for example, they are asked to 'discuss' an issue but they present a one-sided-argument
The essay is poorly structured, perhaps missing an introduction or failing to reach a conclusion based on the evidence presented
The arguments are weak, not supported by evidence/reason or authority, or are non existent
The materials used are not properly referenced or no supporting material is cited
The student has included too much background or description and not enough critical analysis
