I thought the resource was a great way to show students how to prepare for an exam and understand the content. I liked the model answers for each topic as this would be a brilliant revision resource. There were no parts of the specification that were missed and it was perfectly matched.

Useful, relevant and timely. It is clear to read and well produced. It's photocopyability is a huge bonus. I liked its clarity and format. I think it matches the spec well and shows the differences between essay standards very clearly. It will be very useful to use with students when they have finished a topic and either have attempted an essay or are given an essay. The examples are also very useful in class discussion, to show pupils how they might obtain top grades and how a mediocre essay may be painlessly improved, relatively easily.

I really enjoyed the layout of the resource and the model answers would be a fantastic resource for my students to use in class. It would really help students to understand the requirements for the trickier topics and know what is required for the top grades. It allows student of all abilities to access the model answer and understand the skills for each question. I really like how clearly it is laid out. It matches the specification very well and there are no gaps that I can see.

A Sayer, Head of Department & Peer Reviewer

Excellent knowledge and really useful discussion of possible answers. I like the comparison of marked essays. I liked the clear analysis, the comparison of different essay examples and the excellent use of relevant examples and contemporary discussion. It would prove marvellously useful to students and teachers, and is academically rigorous.

Fantastic. An excellent resource. Really helpful for students and teachers alike as it gives concrete examples of successful and unsuccessful essays for each topic and clear feedback on what the essay did well and where it might have lost marks. There is a good range of questions in each topic that cover the specification. This would definitely enhance learning by allowing students to identify the strengths of weaknesses of these essays. This is one the most important ways students can develop their own exam technique and improve their essay writing. Nothing compares to using exemplars to increase student understanding of what a good essay looks like and what they should be aiming to do. The top tips are excellent and would definitely support weaker students with their essay writing.
