All,

do the answers to multi-question essays need to be in the same order as the questions?

here is an example

In what role do you see yourself working immediately after graduation? Why? How will your past and present experiences help you achieve this? How will the London Business School MBA Programme contribute to this goal? Why is this the right time for you to pursue an MBA?

5 questions in total. Do i need to answer them in that order?

cheers,

buff

IMO

Yes, because the question itself flows, like a sequence. From an AdComs, point of view, they would like to see the same flow in the answer/essays.

Its extremely important not the deviate from the topic and answer ALL the questions.

Just make sure you answer all the questions. I don't think order is as important as the flow of your essay.

I would say no; the best essay will answer all of the questions but flow naturally.

great, thats exactly what i had done, i.e focus on flow rather than order of questions. Then i heard this from someone and it spooked me.
