    Here is the link back to the unofficial mark scheme, took it down so people wouldn't cheat in mocks. Its only a guideline we wrote at the time.

    Thank you

    I feel like even when I know my theory, I still flop when it comes to answering past paper questions. I don’t know how to improve my exam technique. I'm making the same mistakes over and over again regardless of how well I know the topic,
    • writing way too much
    • not answering the question being asked (sounds silly but I don’t realise until it’s pointed out that my answer is going off on a completely different tangent than what is being asked)
    • flopping suggest questions
    Irrespective of the topic being tested, I always make the same type of mistakes and idk how to avoid them. If I write less, I'm not adding enough detail and if I add detail, it's too much detail and I have less time on other questions. For example, if it’s a 4 mark question and I’m given 5 lines, I'll write 10 lines full of detail and will still only get 2-3 marks.

    Is there a particular structure to follow with each style of question? What can I do to improve my exam technique OTHER than past papers - I feel like I only make progress on that question, e.g. if it’s a question on photosynthesis and I flop, I will only know how to answer that same question in the future rather than holistically improve exam technique - if that makes any sense??

    Lots of people I know wrote loads and don't always get full marks. What I do is highlight any bits in the question which is useful. Then bullet point my answer. I'm still answering the question but not waffling.
