Advice

  • In order to produce a good essay you should search for and read relevant sources that allow you to address the question implicit in the essay title. High quality sources are university level textbooks and academic journals, as well as government reports and official statistics. Please, avoid A-Level textbooks and popular psychology websites. 
  • Remember that the above essay titles contain an implicit, but easily identifiable question. Clarifying this question and its main elements is the first stage. For example, the first part of the title ‘Describe some of the contemporary explanations of crime and identify the general trends’ is asking the question ‘What are some of the contemporary explanations of crime?’ The second part, also asks a question: ‘What are the general trends?’ While the first question suggests an analytical task (explanations or theories of crime propose the key causes of crime) while the latter requires synthesis: theories can be grouped and you would need to indicate which are the most widely accepted and why.
  • Your essay should present a series of key ideas based on your reading, not just your opinion. You acquire knowledge from reading and then make judgments about it. 
  • Make sure there is a direct relationship between your ideas and the question you have identified.
  • You do not need to use heading in the essay, but if you do they should be few in number.
  • The conclusion must be relatively short, but is very important. 
  • Remember to proofread your essay many times (does the text make sense?) and correct the spelling and grammar. This is part of the careful editing that is part of writing anything that others will read.
  • Read the assessment brief and the assessment criteria (marking grid), before you start and during the time you are working on the plan.  You should also use the marking grid as a checklist before submitting to make sure you have met the assessment criteria to the best of your ability.
  • Some students were unsure as to whether you needed to cite sources and have a list of references. The emphasis of this assignment is not on large amounts of reading. However, if you mention a concept or a theory, you must include a citation which should follow the APA style if you are a Psychology student and the Harvard referencing style of you are an Applied Social Studies student. A very good online source for APA is http://flash1r.apa.org/apastyle/basics/ . For Harvard, please see https://lrweb.beds.ac.uk/a-guide-to-referencing/books 
  • In all cases, in-text citations must match up with what appears in the List of References. Every citation should correspond to a reference on the list at the end (and vice versa). Readers often flick back and forth. An exception is when you cite a secondary source that you read about in a primary one. In that case only the primary source (they source you actually read) should appear in the list of references. Make sure you use the `cited in’ expression

You are reminded that plagiarism of any type will be penalised and result in a fail.
