    I wrote a post on this before which I'll paste in here but it was for a standard A-Level, rather than an IAL which I noticed you're on and may be marked a little differently. Still, the same principles should apply.

    You essentially have 14 marks allocated for KAA and 6 marks for Evaluation.

    You should aim for three points following a typical PEE structure (Define what something is, Apply in context of the question and Analyse the effects it has - remember to keep it relevant to the question. If the question is about a hotel for example, make sure the analysis talks about the effect on the hotel).

    The simplest way to pick up evaluation marks is to give the other side of the argument after each point. Otherwise, if that didn't fit we always used the standard evaluation points like "Depends on the magnitude", "depends on the time" etc.

    Finally, finish with a conclusion and remember to take both sides of the argument. The highest marks are awarded for "nuanced and balanced comparisons, judgements or conclusions".

    So in other words, try and go for something like:

    Point 1, "however...", Point 2, "yet...", Point 3, "on the other hand...", Conclusion

    It's ok if one of the points doesn't have an evaluation but you'll need to ensure that the other evaluation points are stronger (i.e. you'll need to go for 2 x 3 marks rather than 3 x 2 marks in terms of evaluation).

    And of course, standard econ answer of spamming graphs to pick up quick and easy marks.
