Using paragraphs

When you are structuring your writing, you need to consider where you will begin and end paragraphs. Good organization of information in paragraphs helps your reader (who is your examiner) to follow your discussion. If the paragraphs are too long, your examiner may lose concentration and become lost in the information you are providing. If the paragraphs are too short (a paragraph of one sentence, for example, is too short), you are not indicating to your examiner that you are capable of investigating or arguing a point in detail.
