Doing DD100 and am tearing my hair out over my ECA, it's gotta be posted on Monday and it would REALLY help if I could just modify an earlier answer which is absolutely relevant to the question, is that OK?
I would ask my tutor but the bugger keeps going on holiday before deadlines.
I did discreetly do a bit of this for my last ECA, but as it hasn't been marked yet I don't know how it has been viewed. I reworded it as much as I could though. I think it should be OK if it is relevant and you make an effort to rewrite it. I posted mine on Wednesday and am feeling so relieved it's over I couldn't care less what I wrote.
LOL, I absolutely empathise with your sentiment. I'm 500 words away from having this course done with, and at this point I just want it over with! Yeah, I will obviously tailor it to the specific essay question, just didn't know if it was specifically verboten. ECA's are marked by different tutors anyway though. I imagine they wont be adding to their workload by reading all our other essays too, right?
don't be so sure that your tutor doesn;t mark your eca. When I tutored for the OU I had to mark my tutor groups ECA's and I also second marked some other tutor group ECA's. Unless you are really unlucky and your tutor exactly remembers the part you are re-using you should be ok. But then I like many tutors seem to recall if I've read that before. As other posters have said, with some rejigging you should be ok, but don't assume so!
