Tomorrow I am to write a formal persuasive essay of up to 500 words ONLY, within ONE hr ONLY, as a written portion of an application.

We are to be given a passage & then are to respond with a formal persuasive essay in response to a following given proposition arguing for or against it.

What my question is: what is the best way to begin this type of formal essay. They do NOT want someone who is "sitting on the fence" has to be a completely ONE-sided argument!
What is the BEST way to stay on topic, with extreme focus, when we are to be given ONLY ONE HR?!
Any tips/ideas?!!

It will be viewed as to if you respond precisely and perceptively to the task, indicating excellend analysis and evaluation of the reading and proposition...
whether you exhibit precise focus, coherent oragnization and interesting developemnt, with an excellent thesis stongly stating the taken position...etc...
and...exhibiting excellent control of expression (diction, tone, sentence structure, sentence variety, and sentense sense), grammar, punctuation, and mechanics....etc.

Is there any, somewhat, sure fire way to avoid random errors?!!
