Don’t try to memorize the texts of the finished works by heart, if the topic turns out to be somewhat different, this will negatively affect the result.
If at the first moment it seemed to you that you can’t write an essay on any of the topics proposed to you, don’t panic, sit, calm down. Most likely, after a while the situation will no longer seem so critical, and you will remember something.
If you are worried and can’t calm down, try the following breathing exercises: relax your arms and legs, close your eyes, take a deep breath, hold your breath for 20-30 seconds, then exhale slowly, repeat 5-6 times until you calm down.
Try to write on each topic everything you know. Then try somehow to sort everything that’s written down.
Carefully read all the topics, try to determine the exact lexical meaning of each word of the topic, and only then – the general lexical meaning of the phrase or statement. Think about the direction of the development of the topic, relate the topic of the essay to your knowledge and decide whether you can write an essay on this topic, or it is better to abandon it.
When choosing a topic, build on your knowledge and programming. Don’t try to create a literary masterpiece. Now you need to prove that you are able to write a composition correctly.
Write down the main points about which you would like to say in your essay, build them logically – this will be your initial plan. Refer to it while writing the text, it will help you keep the logical line and, therefore, open the topic.
Correlate the volumes of entry, conclusion and main body. The largest part should be the main part, the entry – about half the size, the conclusion is the smallest in volume.
Don’t forget that the epigraph is an adornment of the work, but if you are not sure if it is suitable, or if you know the text and punctuation marks inaccurately, don’t write it at all – nobody will lower the estimate for the absence of an epigraph.
