sir in case of 8markers or 6markers, would you recommend writing 8points or 6points respectively? OR 4points and 3points, respectively, but well explained?
Although there is no fixed rule, if you have studied the marking schemes printed at the end of each set of exam answers, it is usually 2 markers per point. So for 8 marks you would ideally write 4 points.
Much more importantly, is that your aim must always be to get at least 50% for every part of every question and therefore pass the exam. So if for an 8 mark part of a question you can think of 4 points quickly then great. More likely you will not be able to think of 4 points, so rather than waste time struggling to think of more you need to make sure you can at least make 2 points and get your 50% – anything extra is then a bonus.
