My second meeting with my supervisor was very effective. I had finished my essay but it seemed as though it wasn’t up to standard. However, I feel like this was probably the best outcome as my supervisor was able to really explain the requirements of the EE using my written work to show me where I was missing marks. I feel encouraged rather than disheartened because I feel like I know what’s expected now, in terms of how to achieve marks and hit specific criteria in the Extended Essay. In terms of moving forward, I’ve already started to make corrections in my essay, making sure that I have academic sources and opinions in my work, rather than just write from my head. I’ve also learnt the importance of not wasting words; although it’s important to go in-depth, I also have to remember the word limit, getting my ideas across in as little words as possible.
