  • 1. Top 10 World History Essay Topics When it comes to writing, a lot is said and most people forget about the most important points. For this reason, we, at, share a few tips that will help you achieve an interesting essay result. Read on and proceed properly:
  • 2. - Start early. The more time you have, the less tired you will be. You will have much time to devote to the essay in question. - Express yourself. Take time to think about what interests you, what you like to talk about, what makes you react and what captures your attention. Then write about it. One of the biggest mistakes students make is to "write what they think others want to hear, instead of writing about a historical issue, event or a person that was really important globally”. This can turn to be quite boring. Consider writing about one of the top 10 world history essay topics:
  • 3. 1. The Terracotta Army buried with Qin Shi Huang 2. Margaret Thatcher: her role in world’s history
  • 4. 3. The tragedy of Holocaust 4. The main preconditions for the Arab Spring
  • 5. 5. The Muslim conquest of India 6. Who was Grigoriy Rasputin and all about his relationships
  • 6. with the Romanovs 7. The Opium Wars in China
  • 7. 8. Communism ideology and the top reasons for its failure in Russia 9. The history and spread of AIDS
  • 8. 10. James Cook’s discovery of Australia by mistake If it is already late and you are behind deadline, don’t panic. If you
  • 9. don’t know what to write and someone sends an email with a touching story, try to make up your mind. Believe it or not, you can come up with a great approach. Do not get confused and avoid copy pasting! The university admissions officers have read hundreds, even thousands of history essays. They are masters at discovering any kind of plagiarism. Adapting e-mail a story, buy a test somewhere on the Internet, someone else will write the essay, the admissions people have seen it all. Do not risk your college career by taking the easy way out. Instead, consider one of the above history essay topics and proceed. Take a risk In addition, some risks give good results. Try not to end up writing about a history essay topic that everyone writes about. Imagine an admissions officer who stays up late, reading the 50th essay of the day, yours. Do you want that person to fall asleep because they have read ten history essays on the same topic?
  • 10. The risk is not to write a poor quality essay, but to write an essay that is common, which dozen teachers have read about. Ask your friends what they are writing about, and do not write about that! Concentrate If you are writing for an admission, this is your chance to show the admissions officers why they should admit you. Unfortunately, some students try to list every reason their stellar academic grades, athletic skills, community services, all that in a page or two. When that happens, the test looks like a grocery list. If you want to write about another topic, start with a brainstorming session. Go through history essay topics carefully and list some ideas. Then, choose the one that seems more fun and get going. Concentrate on that theme and make it happen.
