1. Use the RESOURCES that the exam paper tells you to.
2. PRIORITISE: concentrate your time appropriately
3. JUSTIFY: if you are making a point, back it up with a particular resource
4. Don't just come to a conclusion without comparing BOTH SIDES (if there are more than one...)
5. Make sure that any key words are spelled the same on your exam script as they are on the exam paper.
You should all be aiming for a minimum grade C, and those doing the Higher Paper should be aiming for a grade A.
