Four Mark Questions

When looking at four mark questions, you usually answer it as if it were two, two mark questions. So you must structure your question:

3) make an alternative point

and then

4) explain the alternative point.

An example is:

Question) Explain how the alveoli and capillaries work together to provide the muscles with the oxygen they need for recovery after a long-distance run.

Answer) An increased breathing rate means that the alveoli have a higher concentration of oxygen. Capillaries around the alveoli have a lower concentration. With thin walls, this allows gaseous exchange to take place (from a high to low concentration). As the blood circulates, it provides muscles with oxygen to help recover.

Nine Mark Questions

Extended writing questions are usually at the end of the paper. In each paper, there are two nine mark questions. The structure of this answer is especially important, it must have an introduction and conclusion to gain higher marks.

You must structure your writing in the following way:

1) An introduction - add definitions relevant to the question (AO1)

2) make a point (AO1)

#### Data Questions

The number of marks gives you an indication of how many things you must state. You must not explain your answers unless told. Here is an example:

Question) Analyse the data in the table above to determine the trends for each fitness test (3)

Answer) The number of sit-ups in a minute increased by one rep per week, which means that they can maintain posture. 30m sprint test decreased in time this means the person can run faster in their activity. Illinois agility test showed signs of improvement but then increased in time, this shows a sign of reversibility.
