Hi Mombastic, I am set to apply for Oxford's BCL course and have a query in respect of the 2k written essay. I clarified on the minimum word requirement with Oxford and they said that there isn't any. However, what according to you would be the minimum word strength that they might be looking for? For instance, would a 1100 word essay serve the purpose as long as it is perfectly analytical?
Hey! My sincere apologies for the delay, have travelled a lot.
I'd try to aim for at least 1.8k. 1.1k in my view isn't a lot. The more you write, the better. However, the golden rule is to be concise and not to be descriptive. They want CRITICAL ANALYSIS, not regurgitating what the law is or what different authors have said. They rave for YOUR OPINION because your inputs will be the thing you will need to implement in your tutorial essays :)
