      Sorry, something has gone wrong.
      Now if you’re interested in how to achieve that, know that you need to use your time productively. A huge time waster, and something which many students fail to do is read the essay question properly, and make sure they understand it fully. If you fail to do this, you might end up spending a lot of time researching and writing the answer to the question you think you are asked, but not the one that is actually asked. I have seen intelligent and otherwise diligent students fall into this trap. This mistake can mean getting a lower grade or even failing. Even if you realise your mistake halfway through writing the essay, you will have already wasted valuable time answering the wrong question.

      Best Answer: Do not worry , worrying will only make things worse for you . Realise that over 50 % of students will leave an essay to the last week or few days before it is due . Treat this as a lesson in time management , also realise that the time constraints of work + study + assignments are not what you have been doing your whole life , therefore give yourself time to adjust . Everything will fall into place eventually .

      • First, stay calm. I've written many essays in just a few hours before, but they key is keeping a cool head.


      Do you have any information that you must be an expert on before you begin writing? If so, take out the text and get to know it so that you are comfortable with what you are going to be writing.
      Before you begin, avoid warmth and soft furnishings. Propped up on pillows in the glow of a laptop may feel like savvy ergonomics, but your keyboard will start to look pillow-like by midnight, and 418 pages of the word "gf64444444444444444444" will detract from the force of your argument. You could try the kitchen. Or Krakow. But your industrially lit 24-hour campus library should do the trick.



      Prepare a small outline if it helps. Sometimes all your brain needs is a little organization. It will help you manage your ideas and make for a well structured paper.

      You still have two days, so I would suggest getting some of the paper written now so that you can save time for editing the paper.
      I don’t know if your are writing general essays, personal essays, or professional pieces which may one day be published. Each of these will require a different level of thought, knowledge, structure and critique, so I can’t offer any specific suggestions as to content. I can offer a basic structure for writing essays that should work every time for general or personal purposes, though, and it is easy to remember and simple to use. This was the original structure taught in school during my early teens. It still comes through with flying colors every time, especially if I’m in a pinch for time.

      The best essays are the ones you have enough time to read over and clean up all your errors. Leave some time before you return to the finished draft before you reread it, that way your mind is fresh and ready to give it a second look.
      Whenever possible, arrange for reviewers (such as your parents or friends) first thing in the morning, and let them know when they can expect a draft. When your deadline is in several days or weeks, you have the luxury of finding reviewers after you have finished your draft. With a shorter deadline, you will not have this ability. Be clear on the short turnaround time to ensure as smooth a review period as possible.

    • First don't panic....

      You have not said what the question of your essay is.
      But that does not really matter.
      Some students even manage to write significantly longer works (e.g. dissertations and theses) in just a matter of days. Granted, they use most of their time each day to research and write.



      First all essays usually conclude something. In order to conclude or prove something you must first start with a question.

      So what is the question you wish to answer?

      Next write down all of the things you know that can prove your point or answer the question you are asking.
      Your procrastination has paid off and now is the time to figure out what your professor wants from you. Whip out those highlighters and take a look at the prompt. You don’t have time to study it carefully, but at least go through it once. As you read through it your first and final time, mark all the important things such as page requirements, specific questions that need answering and required sources. Be sure to know when, where and how to turn in your essay. You don’t want to be scrambling to print last minute.



      write each point in a brief sentence. they do not need to be in any order or sequence - JUST WRITE DOWN YOUR THOUGHTS AS THEY COME TO YOU.

      Next summarize your thoughts into groups. For example you might have several thoughts about the major religions in the world.
      Under normal circumstances, you might devote several days to brainstorming a promising topic, and then you might write a detailed outline before writing and revising your essay over a week or two. When you are on a tight schedule, this is not possible.

      You would group these thoughts together - got it?

      Next you would put these groups into a logical order. For example, if you are discussing the history of Christianity, you would not discuss the prophets in the old testament after you discussed Jesus unless you are trying to see if the speeches Jesus made had their origins in what the prophets had said in the past.
      You probably don’t know your specific topic yet, seeing as you just started. However, that shouldn’t limit your ability to make a plan of attack. Take a look at your highlights and generate an outline of the general items you need; “thesis” and “paragraph on context,” for example.



      Does this make sense so far? Now you need an introduction. Basically you have to remember that an essay tells the reader what you are going to tell them (the introduction), then you tell them (the body of the essay), then you tell them what you told them (the conclusion or summary).
      Finally, remember that “perfect is the enemy of good.” Manage your expectations. Your goal should be to write a good essay, not a perfect one. If you have a compelling hook and a well-organized flow of ideas, check your writing for errors, and then send it in.



      You are lucky because you can use a word processing program to help you. These programs allow you to move your thoughts from one part of the essay to another. When I was a young boy (I graduated in 1964), we had to type all of our essays.
      Whether you are writing a personal statement for a college or graduate school application, or an essay for a high school or college class, your assignment will have specific goals. Before you begin to write, review these goals. Clearly understanding your objective is essential when working with a shortened timeline.

      If we made a mistake, we had to retype the paper!

      Good luck to you. Take it in steps and you will do fine. Remember it took the United States only 6 years to figure out how to get a man on the moon then return him alive. You essay is not as difficult a project, so take it slow and you will be able to finish it before you know it.
      Source(s): Having written many papers in high school and college.
      Be organised and come equipped with two pens (no nipping to the shop because you ran out of ink), bottled water, any notes you have, and some snacks to use as mini-rewards. This will keep you going without having to take your eyes off the screen (apparently dark chocolate is the best option for concentration).

    • If I was you...good thing I'm not no offense. I already got a lot on my plate and really don't need another essay to write.
      Establishing deadlines for a one-day essay is key. Budget 5-10 minutes for brainstorming, 15-20 minutes for creating an outline, and several hours for writing. You can also set aside an hour for feedback and review, and another hour for any necessary revisions. You should also allow for an hour-long break to recharge your mind. Finally, plan to submit your essay several hours before the deadline. A schedule with some flexibility will allow you to adapt to any unforeseen complications.

      I have one due in 8 hours, so ughhh.
      numero uno, you shoot yourself. (not literally)
      numero dos, you think of all the reasons you hate this teacher.
      numero tres, you don't listen to this advice i gave thus far.
      Now, you have 2 days. 48 hours. Ayy caramba!
      8 hours/day=sleep, so 48-16=32
      eating 6 meals=3 hours, so now you have 29
      cleaning/doing other work/watching tv=5 hours, so you have 24 hours to write an essay
      that is dreadful!
      google becomes your new best friend.
      So—write down the first three or four ideas that occur to you. If you cannot think of an appropriate topic, ask a parent or a friend to review the assignment with you. Do not spend more than 10 or 15 minutes on this part of your essay, as the execution ultimately matters more than the idea itself.


      sickness becomes your second bff.
      If you are younger than 18, call in sick.
      If not, then lucky you.
      1.)Find out what religions you have to do
      2.) Go on chats to find out more about religions. For example, type in islamic chat, and there will be people who tell you like everything about the religion.
      You can most definitely research and write a 3000 word essay in one day. There are countless students around the world who pull it off, motivated by close deadlines.

      it's awesome.
      3.)Check notes if you have any.
      4.) Pick a topic, whether it's the denominations or the people who are involved in it.
      5,) decide how much you are writing.
      6.) write an outline
      7.) write the paper and get someone else to proofread.
      ===you might not be screwed, congrats to you.
      Hope, your paper works out, good bye.

    • If this is high school, the key is to use some plagiarism. Use wikipedia and just copy some phrases and that should help ease your burden

    • I know the feeling. I just finished one that I should have been working on all weekend.
      Don’t believe me? There is such a thing as a “Last Minute Dissertation League”, an infamous ranking of students who started and finished their dissertations anywhere between 48 and 16 hours. Definitely not something to strive for, and with plenty of unhealthy side effects, as this article points out.
