That’s great, but why even mention that? The facts and rules of the sciences are essentially set, as are many of the pathways required to understand and then apply them. Obviously. Those four cousins faced many issues related to attaining their qualifications that were not reasonable however. Perhaps they didn’t notice, but they’d be in a tiny minority if so. In the last 40 years, we’ve been trying to deal with those issues. This sounds like a continuation of that. So what is the issue? Doing nothing different is not an option. Do you not understand that?
Longer essays may also contain an introductory page that defines words and phrases of the essay's topic. Most academic institutions require that all substantial facts, quotations, and other porting material in an essay be referenced in a bibliography or works cited page at the end of the text. This scholarly convention helps others (whether teachers or fellow scholars) to understand the basis of facts and quotations the author uses to support the essay's argument and helps readers evaluate to what extent the argument is supported by evidence, and to evaluate the quality of that evidence. The academic essay tests the student's ability to present their thoughts in an organized way and is designed to test their intellectual capabilities.
