EVERY MARK MATTERS

        HOW TO: LIST / STATE / IDENTIFY / SUGGEST                 

DIFFICULTY LEVEL - EASY

 

These types of questions usually carry low marks. They are just testing your ability to recall knowledge and demonstrate understanding.  

 

 

How to answer:

 

Keep your answers short so you can move on quickly to more challenging questions that carry more marks.

Bullet point them and move on.

 

 

Do not write a paragraph as you will be wasting time. You will need every minute of the exam, especially towards the end which is where the higher marked questions will be.
