    Hello there,

    I have this exam coming up and I was wondering what answer structure I should use when writing my essays. For example, is PEE good enough for hitting top marks? Or would another structure be more relevant?

    Also,

    Does anyone sitting this have any exam techniques that they would like to share? Any help whatsoever would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Yeah, for me PEAL is easier to understand so I make sure that I don't leave anything out. If you do that 3 times (3/4 page per paragraph) then you should be fine.

    So three PEEs per paragraph? Or three total PEE paragraphs? How many paragraphs should we do for each part a) or b)? (Or each 20 mins, assuming the text your are studying has two parts to each question)
