The Quantity Guide

THE LENGTH OF YOUR ESSAY will determine many factors including: how many references you need to use, how much you need to read and study, how long your introduction and conclusion should be, and how many paragraphs you should have in the body of your paper. Follow the Quantity Guide for a rough idea on the amount of research and writing you need to undertake. These are only guidelines. Always refer to the specific requirements of your tutor.
