    Hey guys, does anyone know how to actually answer aqa gcse bs 9 mark questions and does anyone have any exemplars?

    Well, first you need to remember the extended strategy:
    KNOWLEDGE (you need to know what you are talking about by using an effective opening sentence to show the examiner you are confident)

    APPLICATION (apply text from the scenario to get more marks)

    ANALYSIS ( considering the cause and consequences of a business action you also need to use connectives that demonstrate what has led up to an event and what is going to happen as a result)

    EVALUATION( You need to make a judgement and justification and weighing up the two arugments.

    I hope that helped

    if there's one option do an advantage and disadvantage of it develop the reason to get 4 marks. then the conclusion is worth 5 marks start with "overall" and say what you advise and why make sure you make a solid judgement. if it's to options i would say do an advantage of the one you choose and a disadvantage of the one you haven't then conclud

    For the 9 markers follow an ADDA Structure in your answer so give the advantage of one and the disadvantage of the other and then give the disadvantage of one and the advantage of the other! and each paragraph should follow a PEAL structure-:
    P - Point
    E- Evidence
    A - Analysis
    L - Link
    Hope this helps!
    Oh, and of course a conclusion where you state your final decision on what the business should do.
