The word count for a page will vary depending on font size and type, margin size, and spacing elements (single/double space, blank lines, subheadings, graphics).
For a page with 1 inch margins, 12 point Times New Roman font, and minimal spacing elements, a good rule of thumb is 500 words for a single spaced page and 250 words for a double spaced page. Using this as an example, a 3-4 page double spaced paper is 750-1000 words, and a 7 page double spaced paper would be 1750 words.
Assignments often specify a research paper or essay length in terms of words, rather than pages - a paper of 750-1000 words or a paper of 1500-1750 words. This way a student's paper will still meet their instructor's length expectations, regardless of varying font size, margin size, or use spacing elements.
When viewing an electronic version of a student paper in MicroSoft Word, the exact word count can be easily determined. Some research assignments require students to include the word count of their paper.
Also, clarify with your instructor whether the words on the title page, abstract (if used), and reference list count toward the expected word/page count.
For various reasons basically boiling down to a three-month mental health crisis at the start of the year actually screwing up my entire second year because of catching up and recovery, tonight I've got to do a 2,000 word-essay in for tomorrow. (It's not actually in for tomorrow, it was in 2 weeks ago, I had a massive extension and somehow it's still not ready ffs). Then I need to revise (read:learn) a module in a week for an exam next Thursday.
Is this possible? Anyone with simialr experience?
and yes I put in MCs
Well, do it and find out?
Definitely possible, but depends on how much you can rant. Some people struggle doing 300 words in 6 hours, but I can pound out 1500 words in half an hour if Im motivated enough, and I have enough points to make.
Any way, we're not you. Only you know how many words you *can* do in a day
