Plan your essay carefully. 5 to 10 minutes may be necessary for you to brainstorm ideas (advantages, drawbacks, examples etc) for the 2 points you’re going to discuss, organize your ideas, find synonyms for the key vocabulary, create strong topic sentences…Do not skip the planning part, even if you think that the essay you are writing is so easy to deal with, as you’ve already discussed the topic in class.
Also, remember that spending 2 or 3 minutes on proofreading is an essential final step in the exam.
