Hi guys,

I was wondering how I'm supposed to format my answers for both Unit 1 and Unit 2 in general.


I have a) and b) questions understood for Unit 1.. but I'm not sure about c) questions. Is this a good way to do it?:

Intro

4 paragraphs for

4 paragraphs against

Conclusion

??

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to do 8 paragraphs between the intro and Conclusion or 4?

I have basically no idea about Unit 2... someone help?!

4 for and four against....!? That is way too much info! That means you won't have as much time to evaluate, losing you marks. Yes, KAA is important. But evaluation is also key.

do two or three points (either for or against, in loads of detail) then evaluate those points in detail. Gains you more marks that way?

KAA also works well- Knowledge, Application, Analysis. Use the sources, or use your own economic knowledge to gain more marks through analysis. Draw graphs. That gives you analysis and knowledge marks. Definitions helps.

Hopefully that helps.
