How do I score a 6 mark question

Updated: Jan 30

There are two variations of 6 mark questions.


Variation 1: A 2 part question

Variation 2: A situation discussion which requires a recommendation or decision that require justification. This form of question would require evaluation marks


Both variations will be awarded either

  1. 2 knowledge, 2 analysis, 2 application, or

  2. 1 knowledge, 2 application, 1 analysis, 2 evaluation (before 2020), or

  3. 1 knowledge, 1 application, 2 analysis, 2 evaluation
