To get more familiar with the assessment objectives and check whether you are applying them, do the following:

  • Get a response you have written to one of your practice questions
  • Check what AOs it is assessed against
  • For each AO use a different coloured highlighter and mark where you have covered each AO.
  • See whether you cover one more than the other – should you? Is it proportional to how the marks are allocated?
  • If you have large areas with no highlighter, are you being concise enough? There is not time for pointless sentences in these exams.
