    (Philosophy and Ethics AS)
    know that the exam is only in a few days but I was wondering if anybody could help me? The highest I've ever gotten on an essay is a B. I don't think this is because I'm lacking knowledge, I think that I just don't know how to successfully structure the essays. My teacher claims that i don't need a structure since I'm achieving my target grade, but I want to move up. So, I was wondering if anyone who's getting A's could help? Like tell me what structure you usually use, or even give an example?? Thank you.

    I achieve A/A* in Religious Education (Edexcel) and the structure that i use to answer questions b, c and d is that I have an individual paragraph for each of my points, this makes it easier for me to see how many points i have included in the answer (especially for the c* question) and also it makes it easier for me to see what i have written when checking my answer if i have time at the end. Also, by having a paragraph for each point it makes it easier for the examiner to mark because its not all clumped up into one long paragraph.

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
