How do i do well in those questions? i'm doing gcse
if you have an exam then if you revise for them do past papers thats key just go on your exam board and see the papers papers and work through them and if you go some wrong then highlight it red and if you got the questions right highlight them green. then you know your weaknesses so you could do it again if u wanted to
best way of revising 4Rs
Explain the process of mitosis -> Don't say why mitosis occurs, EXPLAIN each stage specifically.
Compare the presentation of love in poems A and B. -> don't analyse the two poems separately, COMPARE different elements of the poems relating to the theme of love.
It is also helpful to read over mark schemes and exemplar answers so that you know specifically what you need to include in each type of answer. For history A level I really struggled with one type of essay in particular, so before my exams I planned and wrote one paragraph that I could include in an essay every single day for 3 weeks before my exam so that they became easier to write. I didn't memorise my answers, it was just a good way to revise the content whilst practicing writing practice paragraphs whilst I could look at the mark scheme and make sure that I had all the elements they were looking for. This would be a bit much at GCSE level, but practice questions are the way to go in order to practice exam technique! They get easier the more you do, as long as you mark them/ compare them to a mark scheme afterward
