I have absolutely no idea what the examiners are looking for, and the examiner's reports don't really make things much clearer. I got A's in both AS papers but just about got a C in Unit 3 because of the essay questions. I don't know what constitutes a good answer? Can anyone who got a B or above in Unit 3 or as their overall mark give me some tips?

The TEE approach i have read is good:

T - Theory
E - Evidence
E - Evaluation

Throw some theory in, back it up with some evidence and commentary, criticise it also with evidence and evaluate it at the end but i generally evaluate by saying its inconclusive if there is contradictory evidence...
