    Hi, so I am going to do the external exams for business As, and A-level. I want tips on how to properly answer the questions. The proper structure, every time I write I have excellent knowledge on the question I find it very very difficult on where to start and how to clearly structure my question carefully. My teacher always tells me I have the concept down its just when I am writing it the format and delivery of the message are totally wrong. If anyone can help me that would be great. I have a problem with analyzing the question correctly and applying it to the situation. My end evaluation is always off, and never right.
    Please help. Thanks.

    Just practice exam questions.
    Analysing starts with reading the question and material provided. the key words will give you an idea f what they want the answer to cover.

    Go through the information provided and highlight key words and details.

    Spend 5 minutes planning what your answer is going to contain. It can be a list of answers to questions you know they want covering.

    You can then take from your knowledge the relevant bits of information they want and apply them to the facts. that shows you are capable of understanding the problem they give you plus know the relevant parts of the answer.

    Identify the issues.
    Identify the relevant parts of your course that can give you the answer
    Apply your knowledge to the issues presented.


    It is just a case of practice. Download the exam papers, then get your questions marked, use the mark schemes and id where you lost marks. You will improve eventually.

    The other way is to get some decent revision books and look at specimen answers as well as reading the spec.
