2.6 How good are Philip's and Hansa's essays?
There are no absolute standards against which the quality of an essay can be judged. It depends on the course you are studying – its content and aims, and the level at which it is pitched. Your tutor will tell you how your essays stand within the context of your course. What we can do is outline the strengths and weaknesses of Philip's and Hansa's essays. In the second question of Activity 1 I asked you to think about this and to make your own lists. Have another look at them and see how they compare with my judgements.
