Word Count

Postby Ignatius J. Reilly » Fri Apr 22, 2011 2:57 pm

What is a good word count on a 2 hour essay exam? I realize this depends on a lot of things, but let's say there are more issues on the exam than you can possibly tackle; so it's basically a 2 hour type fest.

Median invariably requires 2000-3000 words per hour. HTH.

for me, the more i write the better i tend to do.

I generally hit about 2k words an hour.

for a 2 hr exam, prob 3-4k is a good target.
In my property class, the cali award winner had just over 10k words for a 3.5 hrs exam.
