    Hi

    I am just struggling with the 10 and 20 mark essays for the OCR course. But answering the essays are always similar in all boards.

    I know it depends on the question that is given but i was wondering if anyone has a basic structure for these questions or any tips and help.

    Thanks for all the help It is much needed

    I do Edexcel;.

    Marks are awarded for,

    Knowledge - Your point, impact, effect, cause, etc.
    Application - Picking something out of the text and relating it to your knowledge.
    Analysis - Saying what it will lead to.
    Evaluation - Saying why what you just said won't happen or why something is significant and will influence what you just said more

    10 Marks- 2 Knowledge, 2 Application and 2 Analysis and 4 Evaluation

    Paragraph one KAA + EV
    Paragraph two KAA + EV
    You could also replace one lot of KAA with a diagram and explain it.

    20 Marks - 4 Knowledge, 3 Application, 4 Analysis and 6 Evaluation. (I think)

    Define key word
    Draw a graph and explain it

    Paragraph one KAA + EV
    Paragraph two KAA + EV
    Paragraph three KAA + EV
    Paragraph four Conclusion

    The way you answer questions on F585 is not the same as in other boards.
    For a 10 mark questions you usually look at 2 points and 2 evaluations (no judgement or conclusion needed). For a 20 mark question you should be looking at 2 or 3 analysis and 2 or 3 evaluations + a judgement or conclusion. Since both questions are based on levels you can't go to L4 without having L3
