HELP! HOW DO YOU START AN ESSAY QUESTION?

Whenever i'm given an essay question i kind of panic and don't know where to start. It could be due not understanding the question or just not knowing what to write that is relevant. Does anyone have any advice at all???:huh:

Essay Question Help

I thought I was the only one that was like this! Fear not, I have learnt the trick. To start I think it would be wise to jot some ideas onto a piece of paper, making quotes or details relevant to the question. Even if it the most silliest idea, put it down anyway and back up with evidence!
. Highlight, underline important parts in the question.
. Write ideas to do with that.
. Do a "cause-and-effect" sentence(s)somewhere. (gains more marks)
e.g. I would recommend you going over sample essays, AS A RESULT, it would give you a guideline for future questions.
. Create a list, mind- map, whatever helps!
. Make sure you order the points: Beginning, Middle, End
~ Make sure your start and finish link together!
. Follow the Assessment Objectives.

Hope this helps you!! Good luck :)
