The daily #revisiontip

When writing essays make sure you pay attention to the key operative words in the question, such as 'explain', 'compare/contrast', 'to what extent do you agree...'

Then make sure you do that!

So often when I mark exam scripts, it's clear that the student knows their stuff, but just hasn't answered the question we set! If you're asked to 'briefly outline' something, don't write pages and pages...there are just no marks for it. Make sure you understand what you've been asked to do and then do it!
