DON'T WRITE ESSAYS ON THE LAST NIGHT
You can afford such luxury speedypaper review no sooner than in the 3rd year, because you will gain experience in writing a large volume of texts.
For now, it's best to stick to this plan:
1 week to find a topic
2 weeks to find literature, read/abstract it, find something you can use for citations and references.
At least 2 DAYS for writing + 1 DAY for proofreading!!!!!!!!! It's frustrating to get interesting papers, but every 2-3 paragraphs, catching typos with your eye ~____~ for a teacher is a sign of laziness and incompetence.
It is better to devote the weekend preceding the deadline to writing your essay, so that if anything, you can correct something for Monday-Tuesday. Usually the morning after "essay night," you can look at your text with fresh eyes and identify the jams! And, consequently, eliminate them before turning it in!
Note that often the LMS likes to put the deadline at 11:59 p.m.!
