Feeling quite upset because I've tested myself and got a really bad grade on it.

I am studying BTEC Computing level 2 I've tested myself and got 22/50 but Idk how I can improve? The only resources I got is Revision guide and Revision Workbook.

I find the 4 marks and 8 mark question is really catching me out

Could you give an example of an 8 mark question and a mark scheme for it if you have one? That might help to give better advice.

For an 8 mark question you should make at least 4 points and explain them. They should consider different sides of the situation and be relevant to the scenario given.

It would be best to make sure you understand what kind of answer they want for each type of question, so look at the mark schemes to figure this out.

You could do. What I would do, if you have multiple past papers, is compare the questions and mark scheme on one paper to get an idea of what the examiners want and then try one of the other papers, referring back to the first one if needed to make sure you're including everything.

No, use a mark scheme to see what each question type wants (for example: what I said above for an 8 mark) and use this to answer questions on another paper. Not so much looking at specific answers as what general *type* of answer (structure, number of points you need to make) is needed for each question.
