1. Start your first draft

Your writing plan should give you a framework to work with (but you might need to adjust it as your work develops). Remember to adopt a critical perspective and develop your points by using (evidence and) sources.

2. Follow up additional research

Go back to your research and find sources to fill in any gaps/points that may come up and that need evidence.

3. Revise and re-write

Revise and redraft your work, ensuring that your argument is clearly identifiable and your material is well structured. Write your introduction and conclusion.

4. Complete referencing

Remember to check which referencing system you should be using and be consistent throughout your assignment. You can use the referencing guides for help.
