EE Recommended word count

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

So my EE is in English Category 3. I'll be analysing a lot of images and I was just wondering how many words should be written for each section

This is my outline:


Part 1

Part 2 - can be shorter than part 1 and 3 (intermediate step)

Part 3


(Mainly, how long should the conclusion be?)

Thanks :)

Hey Befuddled,

It doesn't matter the length of the sections, it's the overall word count that you need to focus on. 4000 words, roughly 3950/3900 is a better bet to ensure that you're within the word limit. If you want an answer to your question, it depends on what you're analysing. I did it in physics, so mine varied rapidly in the word count from 400-500 to 1200 words in a section, so it's just about the content. Just make sure you are concise and get your point across, then the word count comes in later.

Hi Befuddled,

my advice would be to do an outline of your argument/discussion, then look at the points and assign a ballpark wordcount estimate to each section. this should help keep you on track and scope your EE
