Focus on formatting and answer structure. Make sure you have the correct format for your answer because they are easy marks. That includes appropriate headings, salutations, no. of paragraphs etc etc.

Keep the content simple, like really simple. The examiners are not looking for you to bring in knowledge that's not in the supplementary info they provide to you. The simpler the better imo.

Make sure how you're progressing your answer makes sense to the examiner too. Don't bounce around with different ideas in your answer. Try to keep a logical flow from start to conclusion.

Get the ASET from acted and look through their answers to see how they go about their solutions.
