    I'd definitely be interested in this too. My previous degree is in IT and we didn't do any essays for that so haven't written one since I was 17 and that was just school stuff with no referencing or anything like that!

    I must say I'm pleased with the amount of essays or lack there of - I think I've done more than this in 3 months of access. Obviously not at the same level but it's certainly encouraging. xxx
