I know all the stuff to know but I never get the grades as I can not write the answers how they want it. I understand the questions its just the answers that make me lose the marks

Do they say you write too literary-like/long? If so, then look at the your exam board's mark schemes then you can see what they want.

Make sure you make a point for each mark.

My advice is to read the questions thoroughly and to make you sure you are only answering what they are asking. Also, I would do as many past paper questions as you possibly can and get your teacher to go through the mark schemes with you so that you can understand where you are losing the marks and that way you'll hopefully get it right the next time. Remember to be clear and concise in your answers and put in as many key words as possible as that is where all of the marks are. Hope this helps :) **

I agree with the answers above just look at the mark schemes and if there's a question (especially the long ones) that keep coming up just take all the key points. Also if you put all the info in order in the long q's you get a mark for it :) Good luck

Just give up. You're never going to get all the marks. Accept that and you'll do fine. :) Leanr to forgive yourself as well.

Just keep doing past papers because when I used to answer exam question I used to fall short of marks but if you try to memorise the mark scheme, and try to remember all the important information then you should get full marks. Also try and write a point for each mark or emphasis on a point and then explain it as you get more marks for explaining. Good luck for ur next test though :)
