Prepare your notes in advance (see topics in earlier post), then write your comparison essay during the exam.

Here's what I look for as I score a comparison essay at 10 pts -

- Snappy title
- Explanatory subtitle
- Vivid opening.
- Facts, specific details (2 pts.)
- Blended or integrated topics, not separated into blocks.
- Spelling, grammar.
- Length - about 3 items of comparison on each side (2 pts).
- Legibility.
