Hi Werty , someone mentioned it to me that for P1 paper i should always make answer plans in my answer sheet before i write the answer, like, jotting down the points n how i m going to write the answer.Is that ok? I mean can we do it on the answer sheet?
ABSOLUTELY YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!!
Meaning? I still dont understand how to make an answer plan…can u plz suggest me how shud i make an answer plan on my answer sheet?
by heading the section “Plan”, then jotting down as many different relevant points as you can with the time you have allocated to planning – no longer, and probably no less. Time allocation for a plan should be taken as the “number of marks far a question ( or part of question ) divided by 2. So, for a 10 mark part of a question, you should be spending around 5 minutes trying to think of 10 things to write within the remaining 13 minutes.
When you have finished the plan start writing out your ideas in a logical flow – but DO NOT CROSS OUT THE PLAN! Simply rule it off before you start your answer “proper”
When you are writing your answers, you should have, say, 10 things to say ( for a 10 mark question! ). And you have only 13 minutes to write them! That’s 1.3 minutes per point. So, 10 paragraphs = 10 sentences ie one point per paragraph and 1 paragraph per point. Therefore – no longer than, say, 2.5 lines per sentence!
each sentence then becomes its own paragraph!
and leave a line between paragraphs.
hope that that helps
‘Rule it off’ as in,,make a table?? Sorry, i am asking too many q as i have never used this kind of approach..The approach seems really good and it would make it easier for me write my answers to the point n in the exact time frame,,Thanks so much, Werty..Tats going to be really helpful..
Rule it off means “draw a line underneath the end of your plan”
Alrite,,Got it,,Thanks, Werty
ok, good luck
