The key to a successful exam will be providing specific and concrete information. You must provide some rationale for your points and opinions. For example, if you state something is important – tell me why it is important; if you tell me you would do something – tell me why you would do it and what you would hope to achieve. In other words, simply stating information will not provide you with marks. For the all questions you will need to organize your answer before writing it. There needs to be some obvious structure to your answers. Remember that more material does not necessarily translate into a higher mark. Make sure every word counts – I am looking for quality over quantity.
