    I'm sorry but what you've posted doesn't make any sense - can you try again with predictive text turned off?

    "point evidence explain" is a thing you do when writing essays at gcse level. It's like widec or siced - it makes no sense if you haven't been trained. But you make a point (this is silly), you give your evidence (this is silly because I said so) and then you explain the point (because it is silly I don't know why I'm posting here).

    They want to know how to use this technique to get an A grade, or an 8 as it is now known, in their GCSE.

    There is scope for a post to be both. The ability to translate jargon, like "point evidence explain", into sensible English for the general reader is not necessarily taught and tested within the British education system nowadays, judging by the number of people coming out of the system that can't (or don't) do it.
