Some students feel compelled to critique the other perspectives, pointing out flaws in their reasoning.
However, the perspectives are always well thought-out, so critiquing them can be difficult and time-consuming.
For the others, it’s fine to just provide a few of examples of their merits, without endorsing their views wholesale.
You’re also allowed to come up with your own, fourth, perspective. Writing an entirely new perspective takes up a lot of time and brainpower, and still, leaves you with the work of elaborating upon the other three perspectives.
If you have particularly small handwriting, you’ll want to write bigger than you normally do, so that you don’t have to come up with a lot of extra content to fill these pages in.
And, you should make sure you always write clearly, even if you have to speed along in order to write four pages.

For every point you make about the perspectives supplied for the Essay, you’ll need to come up with a few specific examples.
