Structuring a longer response
If you need assignment help we can help you write longer responses to
questions where they are needed.
When answering exam questions, the marks give you a clue the length of
One mark question you are required a short answer. Two marks questions
require double the response and sometimes evidence to support your point.
Three mark questions will take half a page of an A4. Five mark questions will
require a full A4 page response. Ten mark question will require two sides
Reading the question
When you see the word ‘language’ in an exam question, it means you have
to write about the language devices you have learnt such as: rhetorical
questions, lists or lists of three, repetition, exaggeration, alliteration and so on.
Understanding the question
If a question includes an explanation of what you should do followed by bullet
points, you must make sure that you cover all of them in your responses.
Sometimes a hint is given in the question, ‘comment on the writer’s choice of
words and phrases’ then here you should identify and comment on those
words. It is advised you use two or three quotations in each paragraph, following
the PEE rule. Even when a question doesn’t mention quotations you ought to
use them in questions where there are 2 or more marks.
