Will i lose marks for not analysing a Question? History GCSE

  • 0 votes

I did a mock international relations gcse and got the results back today, my teacher has written a few times 'too much narrative' and I've been told that I shouldn't be 'narrating' but analysing. Will i lose marks if I don't analyse? I didn't realise there was a difference between analysing and describing/'narrating'. How do I analyse it better?

Yes, unfortunately, you will. 'Narrating' is telling the facts to the examiner, whereas analysis involves using those facts to reach a good, balanced conclusion to the question you are asked. For example, don't say; 'the people of Germany didn't like the TofV' say 'Germany was forced to sign the T of V for these reasons... This was not received well in Germany for these reasons.... and led to this because of this' if you know what I mean? Good Luck!! <3
