    Hiya there,

    I've just started the IGCSE Economics and Business Studies coursework. One thing i've noticed is the structure of the answers written. My teacher keeps on mentioning 'DER' (Define - Explain - Relate). I do try my best in keeping on to this system but I keep on losing marks. The question is, does this answering system really matter when it comes to the real exam and are the examiners going to be looking at answers structured in a DER format? If this is true, then does this only apply to these two subjects and what tips I can have to help me through it?

    I'de very much appreciate your replys.

    Fahad.
