These pointers are here to help you…

  • Sometimes the answer is not obvious; you will have to think about it.
  • For some questions, there is no ‘right’ answer; it will be a matter of opinion. However, your response will be more convincing if you explain the material reasons for your position.
  • The lines inserted for answers are intended as a guide only. If there is only one line, a short answer should suffice. Where there are more lines, focus on explaining your answer. Use more lines if you wish.
