One big reason I had time to watch pirated uploads of so blurry they were basically radio (this was back when Netflix was a DVD mailer service) is the way I wrote my term papers.

Your outline should be at least a page long for every eight double-spaced pages you plan to write. Now, take those items and drop them into the relevant portions of your outline. Every time you need a quote or reference, it will already be at hand with a pre-made citation. For total time, from research to final edits, anticipate about one hour (two on the far outside) per double-spaced page for A-level work.

How an instructor or lecturer determines what is meant by a term paper is usually their choice, since the expression is a loose one that may or may not involve extensive research, and may or may not cover all the work in a semester or ‘term.’ Depending on the subject being studied, students can choose excellent topics on which to base a term paper to demonstrate how well they have understood the work or research covered during the term.
