we were taught (for AQA)
- 9 marks= 2x PEACH paragraphs
- 16 marks= 2x PEACH and AJIM (conclusion)
- 20 marks= 2x PEACH, with E, A and C in more depth, and AJIM
- 25 marks= same as 20 marks and third PEACH if you have time

PEACH stands for:
Point of the argument
Explain reason for arguing the point (create an analysis chain)
Apply to case study or real life business (or both), depending on the wording of the question
Context, linking to the external environment (PESTLEC)
However (evaluation)

AJIM stands for
Answer the question
Justify your answer
It depends on
Most important factor

Hope this makes sense and helps in some way'
I'm happy to answer any other questions you have
