When writing an essay, follow laid down guidelines. For example in an attempt to write a unique essay, several students exceed the word count limit. There is no need for this, instead abide by the guidelines and do not write more than the stated word count as this will help you write a good and engaging essay.
(3) HAVE A GOOD WRITING STYLE
Your writing style matters as this helps pass your message across easier and better. You do not have to be formal because you are writing to officials, what is important is that you write in a manner that will get the panel engaged and give you an opportunity.
