General essay plans will always be useful, but by now you could also gain from looking at past papers and sample assessments to give yourself some practice with the real thing.In some institutions, those who set the exams are required to produce some general feedback about how students answered a paper; sometimes this feedback is given for each question. If you take a look at previous feedback on the exams you are about to take, you might gain some inside information about how to do well, but be careful. If there is a significant problem with how past students tackled a particular question, and so there is plenty of feedback on it, the examiner may well have decided not to include a question like that in future. It could be that it did not reflect the learning on a course well enough, and so it will not be set again. When you are looking at any feedback of this sort, remember that there is no guarantee that similar questions will be set in the future.
