    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
    Then,
    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!

    hey, what exam board did you do and what did you decide to do for your child study thing? Also, would you say that the structure for the 15 marker that I wrote before was good?
