How to write a 10,000 word essay in university


As I was in the middle of churning out a 10,000 word essay, a friend had this piece of advice to give:

You must stretch the point. 
I teach you, write like this: This is a cat. A cat is not a dog. 
It has 4 legs. Not 2 legs, 6 legs or 8 legs.
Or e.g. Studies have shown that 49% dun like the new blah blah.That means to say 51% are responsive to blah blah.

When I disbelievingly questioned whether he did that during his time in university, his reply was:

"Yah. comments came back that i had critical analytical skills lor."

Erm, right.
