Wjec b unit 2b
« on: December 30, 2013, 09:35:51 PM »

I am trying to raise our unit 2b grades and wondered if anyone had a tried and tested writing frame and student friendly mark scheme.

Thank you in advanced

We use the exam board mark scheme and go through it with them- get them to unpick it and get them to highlight key things to achieve the top band.
The exam board advice on how to structure it is:
1. State your choice
2. Say why you've chosen it (and for the top marks they should still acknowledge some problems with it).
3. Say why you rejected the other options. State some pros but say why they are less sustainable than the other.

And we drum this into them!!!

We photocopy good answers and give them out and we have recalled good papers from the summer series to use. I can send you some good examples if you want? I also have a couple of power points I can email aswell.
We also try to work dme tasks into our scheme of work from the start of yr10 and lower down so they get used to the task and what they have to do.

Pm me your address if you want the stuff!

Advantages of your choice
Disadvantages of your choice
Alternatives (why you rejected them)
