Gold-One-s Understand the topic

You must understand what your tutor wants. You have to think like an academic, and analyse the question to see exactly what it entails.

Gold-Two-s Research the topic

You have to do the research. Use the library and the internet, make notes, and master the important ideas.

Gold-Three-s Write a good thesis statement

When you have done the research, you will know what you are going to argue in your essay. Write a good thesis statement that will help you and the reader.
