Imperatives
Just a posh name for command words
Explain
Describe
State, name, give
Complete
Calculate
Evaluate
Compare
Only a short answer is required, not an explanation or a description. Often it can be answered with a single word, phrase or sentence
G F E D C B A A*
Write answers in the space provided
Use numbers given in the question to work out the answer
You should be able to recall some facts, events or process in an accurate way. You may need to give and account of what something looked like, or what happened e.g. a trend in some data
You should make something clear, or state the reasons for something happening. This happened BECAUSE...
You need to write about the similarities and differences between things, remember to write about both the things you are comparing
You will need to apply your knowledge to a new situation. Often there will be more than one correct answer
1. Science GCSE exam report
2. Command words
Stay calm – read the question carefully and think back to what you have learnt.
Breathe! Your brain needs oxygen.
Remember – YOU CAN DO IT!
THINK about what you are going to write before you write it.
When you have finished CHECK your answers carefully – ask yourself “Does my answer ACTUALLY answer the question?”
Exam Techniques
Name one
A one word answer is usually sufficient
Give one
Means exactly that (if you give 2 answers and one is wrong you will get no marks)
You will not have met this before
There may be several different answers
Use your scientific understanding
Apply sound scientific reasoning
Sensible ‘GCSE’ level answer = full marks
Electrician is at risk of an electric shock
Rubber boots will insulate the electrician
This will stop the current being able to flow to the Earth
This will prevent the electrician from getting an electric shock
Calculate
Means
Proportions
Percentages
Show all your working
Use an approximation to check the ‘scale’ of your answer
Don’t give an answer to eight decimal places
In the
sports hall
Good Luck!

Key points from the report
Students not prepared for demands of new spec
Students do not know what command words mean
Students do not use the information in the question

1.2 x 2 = 2.4 kWh
2.4
2.4 kWH used in 2 hours
so, 15p x 2.4 = 36p
4/20 x 100%

7600/950 = 8 years
850 x 0.4 = 340
Energy = 100 x 50 x 510
= 2550000 Joules
70-20=50
This is because dirt will decrease the amount of energy the solar cells produce
This will mean less money will be saved, making the pay back time longer.
Step up transformers increase the voltage. This means that less heat energy is lost through the wires as the electricity travels through them
P1 examination Thursday 17th January 2013!
This exam is 25% of your Science GCSE
TIBS This is because…
