could anyone help me ? 

i know that there are 2 popular layouts : 3773 vs 35553

in my case: i have an essay which i oppose as well as support . however, i support more than i oppose. So, i divide the essay's body into 3 paragraphs. two first parapraph for supporting and the third for opposing.

is that layout ok?

I think that layout is generally fine because you include more ideas on supporting arguments. Perhaps it might be better to place your opposing paragraph at the beginning and follow by the last two paragraphs.

Hi Tommy and emokinxh!

Tommy's advice is excellent, as usual. It's better to give the opposite view first, and then your opinion.

So as he recommends, you could have this layout

  1. Intro
  2. What other people say/One side of the problem
  3. What you think 1/Other side 1
  4. What you think 2/Other side 2
  5. Conclusion

The essay on "Will radio disappear?" is a good example of this kind of layout. 

The 35553 layout can be used when you completely agree or completely disagree, but the way you suggest is fine. But give the other side first, and then give your opinion last.
