    I am currently a student in year 10 doing GCSE business studies, and without sounding too cocky my knowledge is very good (I think lol), whereas my exam technique is awful.

    I have a test tomorrow and whilst I have covered all the content, I am quite worried about the 6 and 12 markers. We have been told that:
    - 6 markers are "Analyse" or "Discuss"
    - whereas 12 markers are "Evaluate"

    Would anybody be kind enough to tell me the difference and potentially give me a way of structuring my answer? So for example in a case study, we looked at some 12 mark theory today as preparation:
    "Evaluate whether Sally's business will be a success" - with a lot of given information.

    I would love to know how to structure an answer to get top marks, and potentially how much is expected.
