Ok so I have written up my 1400 words essay but my question is how will I memorise it perfectly? My essay's in 2 weeks from now and we got 1 hour to complete it so any strategies/advice from others who have done it would be helpful since this is my first time doing an eco essay in timed conditions (we were going to do one for our yearly but it got changed to an assignment due to covid... [of course]). I can't bring any form of notes in so its just pure memorisation.

Cheers everyone.

make ur essay into a bunch of palm cards and read them out to yourself initially looking at the cards and then eventually start looking away until you can read it aloud without looking at the palm cards

try and regurgitate from memory after u finish and only look at the palm cards when u need to

this is honestly best strat i found for memorising and it helps if u do like maybe 2 paragraphs a day so u dont overload urself with info

1400 words to memorise? That's crazy ... I used to struggle memorizing 900-950 English essays, so fair play if you can memorise it. Makes sense why you have to start memorizing it nice and early.

If the exam question has already been given, then memorising a perfect essay would be ideal. However, if it hasn't already been given, I'd suggest you make essay skeletons or dotpoints instead.

Nonetheless, here's a weird tip for memorising your essay: write down how many sentences are in each paragraph, and what the first and last words of each sentence are. This will help jot your memory a lot whilst you're in the process of memorising it.

I tend to summarise each paragraph into simple dotpoints which are easy to memorise, because essays are written formally.
So like instead of: In 2020, Australian spent a 200 billion australian dollars stimulus package in response to covid to maintain economic growth and unemployment, which are two key economic objectives, I do this instead:
  • 2020 --> 200b stimulus --> covid --> EG and U/E
I find it much shorter and easier to memorise this way. Hope that helps!
