Exam technique – answering calculate questions

Calculate questions are the ones that students tend to be pretty good at.  You need to find the appropriate numbers in the question, plug them in the right equation and off you go.  You can get marks for showing your working if you’ve followed the right method, even if you’ve got the final answer worng.

You can also sometimes get a mark for writing the units, even if you’ve got the answer wrong.  Always do this if they don’t give you the units already!
