  • Plan a structure (outline headings) for the essay. This may change as the investigation develops butit is useful to have a sense of direction.
  • Undertake some preparatory reading.

The student is ultimately responsible for ensuring that his or her extended essay is authentic, with thework or ideas of others fully and correctly acknowledged.

Additionally, it is the responsibility of a supervisorto confirm that, for each student he or she has supervised, to the best of his or her knowledge, the versionof the extended essay submitted for assessment is the authentic work of the student.
