Revising: Model Answers
Amy studied at the University of Bristol and is our revision blog guru. She only graduated recently so understands the pressures of being a student better than most, and is here to share her wisdom so that you revise effectively, smash your exams, succeed at school and write cracking university and job applications.
It’s all very well doing practice questions, but working out where and why you went wrong is how you really improve.
Mark schemes are great; but sometimes it helps to see a model answer written out in context, to give you a clearer idea of how you can answer better next time.
We have lots of model answers on Save My Exams which have clear explanations that make it easy for you to understand your mistakes! Like this one below:
So, how should I use model answers?
- Mark your answers to our topic questions or past papers using the mark scheme
- Compare what you’ve written to the model answers we provide. This will help you see how you can improve, and get some context for your mistakes.
- Make sure you really understand where you went wrong before you move on to revise something else. Add information to your notes if necessary, to ensure you don’t make the same mistake twice!
To find our Model Answers, look for the ‘Model Answers’ column in the Topic Questions and Past Papers section for each subject!
