10% more marks for no more studying?

Learning command terms can be worth as much as  10% more marks for students who have not learned the terms.

Each syllabus statement carries a command terms e.g. State, Name, Describe or explain. This tells you how far to go when learning the syllabus point.

The same command terms are also found in the examination questions and they tell you what to do, what type of answer is required.

So if you want pro improve your grade without studying any more Biology them learn and practice the command terms.

This is a quality link to a slideshow on Command Terms by Stephen Taylor, ignore this at your peril!

The terms can also be found on Pages 11 and 12 of the Syllabus guide.
