5.2 ESSAY - HOW THE ESSAY IS MARKED
We need to start by having a look at a typical exam question:
First you are told the document needs to have between 220 and 260 words. This means less than 200 words and more than 280 words will lose you marks.
Then some context is given:
'... you have been part of a discussion ...'
Then you are given a set of three points and a set of corresponding notes, from which you need to choose two to discuss
You are required to give reasons for any ideas you express.
You don't have to use the notes that are given, but if you do, the ideas need to be in your own words.
