The title says it all really, At Nat 5 English you got one mark for a quote and one mark for an analysis but at higher you get one mark for basic comment and two marks for a detailed/insightful analysis.

My problem is that i always seem to get only basic comments, and despite trying I can never seem to make a detailed point. Are there any tips anyone can give me For writing a more insightful analysis of a quote in RUAE/set text portion of the exam?

There is no set answer to what markers actually give marks for - I did Higher last year and it took me ages to get the hang of what they were looking for too, it's horrible. Try and develop you answers more, maybe after your quote state your comment but then back up your comment of why this is the case. I found the more questions I did the more I got used to writing more and developing my answers... but I know studying for English is the most boring thing ever.

Hope this helps!
