Write a WWW (What Went Well) and an EBI (Even Better If) for the answer.
  6. 6. EXAMINER’S COMMENTS ON ESSAY A good start with a clear agenda set out right away. The candidate makes clear what tasks were undertaken for each unit and discusses a range of research methods, referring to both examples and technical terms. There is some reflection on the methods used, indicating what might have been learnt. Some elements of planning are discussed, though this is less developed. The A2 work is glossed over a little, with less reference to specific examples. Overall, there is a sense of structure and development in this response, but it would be better if it were supported by more concrete examples. High level 3 (B) WWW: identifies research methods with examples and terminology, some reflection. EBI: more specific examples (especially of planning and A2).
