leaving cert history essay

Hi just wondering how long a leaving cert higher level history essay should be if I am aiming for H1/2 , thank you .

Probably around 4-6 pages is the usual but aim for 5 or more. Quality over quantity but still need enough information to cover you for 50-60 marks
As much as you can write in 40 minutes is what I'd recommend. It gives a fair representation of the time you'll have in the exam and will kinda force you to quickly plan out before hand what you're going to write so you aren't wasting time or writing too much on one topic. That's whats helped me a lot
