    Hi there. I really need help wit how to structure and answer 15 marks questions in child development tests. If you can help me please do! I just need how to get full marks in this question as my teacher is pretty useless 🙄
    Thank you!

    this is probably WAAAAY too late but this is what our teacher has told us:
    3/4 marks for SPAG & Structure
    6 marks for point
    6 marks for explanation
    e.g. If the 15 marker was "Explain how a woman might know she is pregnant and suggest some clothes that woman may wear whilst pregnant"
    3 or 4 marks for using correct punctuation and correct spelling as well as writing in paragraphs.
    3 marks for 3 points for the 1st half half of the question (how a woman may know she's pregnant) e.g. she may be nauseas
    3 marks for 3 explanation for the 1st half of the question e.g. due to increased hormones in the body etc
    3 marks for 3 points for the 2nd half of the question (suggest some clothes a pregnant woman should wear whilst pregnant) e.g. loose and expandable
    3 marks for 3 explanations for the 2nd half of the question e.g. so that the baby can develop properly etc
    i hope this helped even though its almost 2 years late and you've probably sat the exam already, oh well, it was kind of revision for me lol!
