have got some question on how marks are allocated in essays.

in Unit 6, I did essay question 1

for 1b, about the ways to improve competitiveness of UK goods

I have actually rushed through the essays
and although I've managed to write down 4 points and 3 evaluation
2 points of them are actually "invalid" (at least they are very unclear)

For the 4 points, I wrote
1, increase spending on education and training
2, introduce more competition into the market , forcing firms to be more price aware
3, protectionism, increasing tariffs on imports in which the imports may be reduced so that domestic firms have chances to gain productivity and efficiency as the chance of sales being distorted by cheap imports is reduced.
(kicking myself, don't ask me why did I mention protectionism)
4, better management of government policies, reduce conflicts between them which may raise inflation
(again, kicking myself, it's not making sense at all)

I did write an evaluation at the end which doesn't relate to the points mentioned before at all, something like:
the service sector is booming and the UK's comparative advantage in price has already been lost to countries like China, therefore UK may need to raise quality of products rather than restoring price competitiveness, blah blah blah

do you guys think I can actaully get 32/60 ????

thank you so much

Why wouldn't you turn to teachers if you were being bullied?
