    Maybe ask the teacher what you can add to the essay and how to add more depth. I'd probably say that thinking about the question for a minute or two and setting out a mini plan is a good idea, which may allow you to add more detail

    Thank you it seems like a good technique ... I'll try it out next time I do a paper 😊
    I do keep asking him and he keeps on telling me to connect all topics into a coherent concept... Though I feel it's easier said than done ... I can't really put that into effect

    Maybe have a look at the relevant mark scheme and examiners report to see where the marks are awarded in terms of content and structure for the question. I found that this was the most effective revision technique for Economics. Hope that helps.

    I do use the making scheme though it gives a brief outline of points you should have. I find no problem in that. My issue really is developing a point into a concept,in order to add depth.
    Though let me try out the examiner reports 😊
