    Hi all,

    I was looking at the mark scheme and I found out that I can get marks by explaining why I chose the answer, or by rejecting the other three options.

    Is it possible to get full marks by a combination of explanations and rejections? So one mark for explaining why I chose the answer, and two marks for rejecting two of three options.

    Or does it have to be all three marks from one type? So all three marks for explaining or rejecting all three other options.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes you are right it can be any way, mostly (unless it has changed) it's max 2 rejection marks however these tend to be the most difficult ones for some people as a lot of students think just saying "it cannot be this blah blah blah" and they write a rejection which isn't actually logical, for which they get no marks for. Easiest way is a definition, diagram, and small explanation. A rejection can also be mentioned to "confirm the marks". Got 90/100 like this this year!

    Thank you so much!!

    I'm sorry but if you have time, could you briefly tell me the essay structures for 4, 6, 10, 14, 14 mark questions in section B?

    I did AQA Econ last year and I have no clue how I should answer edexcel essay questions...

    are there any structures at least?

    Yeah sure - however I must say I did Edexcel old spec but I can't imagine it will be drastically different. 4 marks is generally a definition or using data/reference like if they have a CPI inflation graph just quoting numbers or figures along with an explanation. 6 marks just analyse what the question is asking (one point with evaluation or two brief points with evaluation which is what I do). 10 marks generally involve definition (1 mark), diagram (2-4 marks), using data (which is up to 2/3 marks), one/two points with evaluation for the rest of the marks. Only additional thing you will have for 14 is that there is more in depth analysis of the points and a better evaluation needed! You're lucky, I had to do a 20 and 30 marker for my macro!! :P good luck if you need more help PM me or something
