Relative Judgements (In AS History) watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys,

    I wrote an essay for my history teacher, with the title 'To what extent...’ Etc etc. At the end of each paragraph I wrote things like 'This was responsible to a greater extent that that' etc, for my relative judgements. However, she gave me a C (I'm normally an A student) and when I asked her why, she told me I had not made relative judgements. Apparently, judgements are only relative when you use the words 'more/less important’, but I don't understand how 'to a greater/lesser extent' is not a relative judgment, especially as that is what it asked me to do in the title? Will I get marked down for not putting 'more/less important'?

    If anyone could shed some light, I would be most grateful. I don't want to write the wrong thing in my exam, but I don't see how I wrote the wrong thing in the first place.
