Learn good exam techniques
Set aside 5-6 minutes planning the answer before you start writing it. Consider using a mind map or another visual representation of your ideas.
A plan should:
- provide a structure and coherence to your answer;
- help you to build your argument and bring it to a conclusion;
- reduce the likelihood that you will miss obvious points.
- include notes on an introduction and conclusion with your main body.
- reflect the process in the question.
- be written in the answer book and labelled as rough work
Never cross out any of your plans: examiners like signs of planning.
