    In the title really I was just wondering as I want to have that extra detail to gain a high grade. However, I know examiners cheak for key points? I f I completed detail which is not on the markscheme but is credit worthy would I lose marks?

    (This is mainly for humanities)

    Thank you

    Classical Civilation. History. English Literature, Geography and Religious Studies.

    Just stick to what the spec requires you to know.

    If you don't have the answers to what they were looking for, then they will simply not be able to mark it.

    Key words and structure of essays are different for GCSE and AS.

    If you feel like you can even understand the context at AS level when your studying GSCE, I guess. But personally for me I tried to do the same but it just sounded like gibberish. Pherhaps it's best to just stick the GCSE scheme and wait till you get to A levels because it'll be more easier and make more sense. You can still get more marks following the GSCE schemes.
