Ma’am I know I have probably asked this question before too, but in haste and stress am unable to trace back to it, so confirming once again
In this question part a) ii) and iii) can be combined right? And we can write one single answer? Here it may be easier to differentiate between ii) and iii), but suppose it is not then we could have combined right? Since there is no separate mark allocation for ii and iii separately.
Moreover Ma’am part a)iii) am little confused whether we should write evidence or actions? How do we know that? Evidence would require us to change the start of sentence, hence asking…
(iii) follows on from (ii) – you need to make point for (ii) in order to make relevant points for (iii). I reiterate that with CBE workspace now you should be able to structure answer to maximum effect (by which I mean easy and pleasing for the marker)
Again – just because you don’t SEE a split of marks (which is an ACCA convenient – separate marks must be given for (a), (b) but not (i), (ii)) doesn’t mean there is one. If the examiner bother to split out requirements you should generally respond to them separately to maximise marks,
Here the examiner says “actions …. including evidence” so you can write both.
Although actions/procedures should start with a verb – the evidence is the “what it is”. You actually don’t (now) have to change the style of writing for evidence – as long as the evidence is there in the point, you will get the credit. This is really because, as a matter of grammar, it would unfairly penalise candidates whose first language is not English to make such a distinction.
