  2. Essay writing is really very hard for students and many students are really stressed to write it. So finding a best essay writing format is not easy. Anyway you can check any essay writing services and they can help you to find a good format to write the essay. I can recommend a site that has helped me. It's called Evolution Writers Good luck!
