    I'm in year 13 and have honestly never found the bets way to tackle these questions. 5 months from the real exams and still getting D's on mocks when I know the knowledge. What's the best way to tackle 10,12, 20 markers?

    10 Mark Structure - x2 points with counter arguments in the context and applied to the case and question.
    12 Mark Structure - x2 points with counter arguments and evaluation and applied to the case and question with context.
    20 Mark Structure - x3 points with counter arguments, evaluate these points as you go along and you also need a paragraph outlining a judgement e.g. if it's an option question, like deciding which leadership style is suitable for business x, make sure you summarise the points you have made, talk about short term and long term effects and which style would suit the business and why.

    10 Marks - 2 Knowledge, 2 Application, 3 Analysis, 3 Evaluation.
    12 Marks - 2 Knowledge, 2 Application, 4 Analysis, 4 Evaluation.
    20 Marks - 4 Knowledge, 4 Application, 6 Analysis, 6 Evaluation.

    Knowledge - defining key terms and explaining them, showing you know and understand the concepts in the question.

    Application - context; referring back to the case and using it to create examples and/or further develop your points. Often in questions if you do not use application you cannot get above x amount of marks.

    Analysis - examining the cause(s) and effect(s) of your points, developing a chain of reasoning for your argument.

    Evaluation - often counter balance and/or drawbacks of the point(s) you have made. What happens in the short term and long term? Who does it affect? Why might this be good/bad for x business?
