  • use a freeform style in your preliminary version , leave the word count to the end
  • link the article to the topic you are discussing , the purpose of the IA is to make you present your knowledge, your ability to analyze , and how you can link the contemporary topics to your study
  • be specific and straight forward in your writing , this is the only option to make a good essay
  • avoid using jargons , although it might be acceptable in most cases but it does not appeal your IA evaluator, if you plan to use a jargon , make sure it is commonly used in the most of textbooks and articles smoothly.
