Essay—(External Assessment): The TOK essay is written on one of a list of prescribed topics published by IB. The aim of the essay is to demonstrate your ability to understand a complex topic, think analytically, and write with clarity and sophistication. TOK Essays range in length from 1200-1600 words.
The essay is well organized with paragraphs devoted to claims and counterclaims with respect to whether doubt has a role in knowledge acquisition, and, if so, whether that role is positive or negative. The arguments are clear, supported by good examples, and some effective links to the history and arts.
