How many points should you include in a 6 mark question at GCSE for geography? I am awful at these - I never seem to write enough or I write too much! Thank you!

One point for each mark - that's what my teacher told us. Or, you can write 4/5 points and explain them a bit more.

Orrrr, as mine said:
2 very well developed points: e.g. point + stats + explanation (3 marks each)
Or 3 not so developed points: e.g. point + stats or point + explanation (2 marks each)

This has worked for me, I hope it helps- at least somewhat :3

Hi there,
For a 6 marker i would include a conclusion to just sum up all your points. It shows the examiner that you can separate each point and re-link them again in a summary.
