Urgent help! Watch
I'm going to quote in Puddles the Monkey now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed.
How different are the definitions? Most examiners just want to see that you've managed to pick out the key concepts of a term, rather than needing a word-for-word recollection.
I noticed in mark schemes the answers to definitions change. For instance a question asked to define something in a June 2010 and the same question came up in the June 2013 paper, however the answer to the question in the mark schemes were different even though the question was exactly the same. What do i do about this?
What are the two definitions?
Do they mean the same thing?
Although only one definition of something will generally appear in a mark scheme, you don't usually have to reproduce the exact same wording to be awarded full marks. However, there may be key words that are essential to ensure marks are awarded. I often see people saying "well that's what I meant" when their definition isn't clear or detailed enough to earn marks. Examiners can't mark what is in your head or what you meant to say, only what is written down.
