Academic writing: Advice to help you pass (and do well on) any course
Do not copy
Study Essay Writing Strategy
Analyse your essay titles and use this to shape (structure) your essays.
Write in your own words, following the plan you made when analysing the title. Use your own mind to construct the issues, instead of following a book, a lecture or your notes. Bring in quotations from and other references to texts to support your arguments. Explain the quotations you use. Quotations should illustrate, not carry, your essay.
A good introduction, with an outline, a summary and an argument statement will improve any essay considerably.

Study Referencing
Start referencing as soon as you begin to draft
Make sure that your essay drafts and essays have a a bibliography and references following the Harvard system. Know the things you do not do in the Harvard System. - Reference mainly to books, articles and internet sources recommended by the course - Where you use internet sources, these should also be referenced following the key word/number rule. Reference all quotations, but reference more than quotes.
Clear English will support clear thinking
Know what to do if your essay is too long or too short
Self-assess your drafts and essays using the Essay Marking Guide
Look at the resources for all courses to see what can help you.
