I know that it's over.. but I've always had time manangement issues, and constantly being told that I haven't written enough for my essays. For the HSC I wrote 2 paragraphs on prescribed and 1 on related.. each para took up approx a page. My essay was altogether 4 and a half pages long..
Would it be long enough ?
I know its quality over quantity, but I'm losing marks for quantity

It depends on your writing size, but that is probably too little. Ideally, you should be writing about 1000 words, or 7+ pages with average hand writing.

I'm quite sure i was at 1000 words or more and my writing was HUGE, and i completely filled 6 pages.

@OP, post a picture of your exam handwriting and we can judge better.

Your writing is quite small so that amount of pages sounds fine imo.
