Nathan’s Unofficial Guide to Writing a HD Essay*
*Note results may vary.
The introduction is worth 10% of your mark so you should be looking at allocating roughly 10% of
the words to it, which for essay one would be roughly 150 to 200 words (Goodmarks, 2008). When
Eva, Inglis and Abeysekera (2012) are marking your introduction they will be looking for two key
areas. First, there needs to be a clear introduction to the topic area. As the essay is about managerial
functions, roles and skills we need to have an overview of this area. Second, there should be a clear
position about what the essay will discuss and if applicable, what side of the argument the author is
on (Cleese, 1978). This can be as simple as saying “This essay will now discuss…” (Student, 2011, p. 6).
The new paragraph starts on a new line, do not leave another line between the paragraphs.
The body of the essay is by far the most important as it is worth 60% of your mark. In order to get a
high distinction you are required to display “Excellent discussion supported by quality research in
the literature in combination with the use of relevant examples to support the arguments”
(Inglis&Abeysekera, 2012, p. 2). This will be a short paragraph as the next point I have to make is a
completely different argument that the one that has been made in the current paragraph (Rambling,
2011).
Each paragraph should contain a topic sentence which states why you are supporting or
arguing a particular position (Spenser, 2007a). For assignment one this may mean discussing
functions in one paragraph, roles in another and skills in the final paragraph (Essay, Lay & Out, 2011).
Kimberley and Crosling (2012) suggest that supporting sentences, which contain evidence to support
the position and an analysis of the evidence, concluding sentences, summing up the paragraph, and
transition sentences, which make a logical step to the next paragraph, used in each paragraph.
This is probably the most important point to remember (Spenser, 2007b). You need to write
analytically for university. That means forget your year 12 English essays. You have to analyse, not
2
describe what is happening. That means that “there is no point in including long quotations from the
textbook. As you are simply regurgitating what the textbooks says we do not give any marks for that.
Anyone can copy words from a textbook” (Essay et al., 2011, pp. 12-13). What we want to see is you
using the knowledge gained from journal articles and the textbook as well as relevant management
examples to critically analyse and answer the question. Sum up the strengths and weaknesses of
different arguments and present a clear rationale for why you think that Morphet needs to use
different managerial functions, roles and skills (You, Can, Do & It, 2005). Relevant management
examples will be really easy for this essay as it is a real company with lots of media on it (You et al.,
2005).
With referencing make sure you are using the Q-manual (Goodmarks, 2008). It explains very
clearly how to reference correctly and once you know how to do it, you will not forget it (Trust and
Me, 2000). Ensure you are using at least five journal articles plus the textbook (only if you want to
use the textbook, you do not have to). If you have two or more articles that make the same point
and you want to use them both, why not reference them both (Making, 2010; Multiple, 2007;
Reference, 2011; Work, In and Essay, 2012).
In summary, your conclusion is also worth 10% so make sure you are writing a good one
(Last, Attempt, At and Marks, 2000). You need to bring the argument to a close and restate your
position in different words than your introduction. A really good essay will conclude by making
implications from the essay and what needs to be looked at in the future. Once again try to use 150
to 200 words for the conclusion. Good luck.

Intro to Management - How to do the essay

  • 1. 1 Nathan’s Unofficial Guide to Writing a HD Essay* *Note results may vary. The introduction is worth 10% of your mark so you should be looking at allocating roughly 10% of the words to it, which for essay one would be roughly 150 to 200 words (Goodmarks, 2008). When Eva, Inglis and Abeysekera (2012) are marking your introduction they will be looking for two key areas. First, there needs to be a clear introduction to the topic area. As the essay is about managerial functions, roles and skills we need to have an overview of this area. Second, there should be a clear position about what the essay will discuss and if applicable, what side of the argument the author is on (Cleese, 1978). This can be as simple as saying “This essay will now discuss…” (Student, 2011, p. 6). The new paragraph starts on a new line, do not leave another line between the paragraphs. The body of the essay is by far the most important as it is worth 60% of your mark. In order to get a high distinction you are required to display “Excellent discussion supported by quality research in the literature in combination with the use of relevant examples to support the arguments” (Inglis&Abeysekera, 2012, p. 2). This will be a short paragraph as the next point I have to make is a completely different argument that the one that has been made in the current paragraph (Rambling, 2011). Each paragraph should contain a topic sentence which states why you are supporting or arguing a particular position (Spenser, 2007a). For assignment one this may mean discussing functions in one paragraph, roles in another and skills in the final paragraph (Essay, Lay & Out, 2011). Kimberley and Crosling (2012) suggest that supporting sentences, which contain evidence to support the position and an analysis of the evidence, concluding sentences, summing up the paragraph, and transition sentences, which make a logical step to the next paragraph, used in each paragraph. This is probably the most important point to remember (Spenser, 2007b). You need to write analytically for university. That means forget your year 12 English essays. You have to analyse, not
  • 2. 2 describe what is happening. That means that “there is no point in including long quotations from the textbook. As you are simply regurgitating what the textbooks says we do not give any marks for that. Anyone can copy words from a textbook” (Essay et al., 2011, pp. 12-13). What we want to see is you using the knowledge gained from journal articles and the textbook as well as relevant management examples to critically analyse and answer the question. Sum up the strengths and weaknesses of different arguments and present a clear rationale for why you think that Morphet needs to use different managerial functions, roles and skills (You, Can, Do & It, 2005). Relevant management examples will be really easy for this essay as it is a real company with lots of media on it (You et al., 2005). With referencing make sure you are using the Q-manual (Goodmarks, 2008). It explains very clearly how to reference correctly and once you know how to do it, you will not forget it (Trust and Me, 2000). Ensure you are using at least five journal articles plus the textbook (only if you want to use the textbook, you do not have to). If you have two or more articles that make the same point and you want to use them both, why not reference them both (Making, 2010; Multiple, 2007; Reference, 2011; Work, In and Essay, 2012). In summary, your conclusion is also worth 10% so make sure you are writing a good one (Last, Attempt, At and Marks, 2000). You need to bring the argument to a close and restate your position in different words than your introduction. A really good essay will conclude by making implications from the essay and what needs to be looked at in the future. Once again try to use 150 to 200 words for the conclusion. Good luck.
