I still don't get how the Evaluation and Analysis whether they are the same or goes well together.
I write down the Point. Check
I explain it. Check
An evidence to support it. Check
HERE WE GO TO THIS POINT WHERE I HAVE TO EVALUATE IT. BY EVALUATING IT, IS IT ABOUT LINKING IT BACK TO THE QUESTION OR A DIFFERENT ONE AND THE 'LINK' PART GOES FAR BACK TO THE END OF MY PARAGRAPH? What does Evaluation even mean? no matter how much I attempt to do it, I still can't smash the marks which I always end up with low marks.
Is it even the same as Analysis?
Do I have to build an arguement using another contextual knowledge?
Can I use anything else besides contextual knowledge?

Hope anyone can help me TT___TT

I think analysis is when you discuss why it is or why it is not the most important factor, evaluation in other subjects is giving a counter argument or a reason why it is so good

^ what i do for essays not sure about source questions

Yeah analysis also involves using key details and figures in order to back up your points (contextual analysis)
Evaluation is used in questions where you're determining which point is more important than the other or which is the most important factor leading to said event. Linking your analysis to the question can also prove to be beneficial.
