Tip of the Day #7


A quick tip:

Tip of the Day: While being asked short questions, try to elaborate on the point asked before outright attempting the question.

For example,

(1) If the question is Define factors of production. You should not only give the definition, but also mention the four main types of factors of production. 

(2) You have been asked to give two features/provisions of an act (History). In addition to mentioning the two features, you should also first give a small introduction about the act such as the year when it was passed or who passed it and why.


These little things will give meaning to your answer. Yes, you may not get full marks if those two features are wrong. However, it gives the impression to the examiner that you know what you’ve studied, i.e. you know what you’re talking about.

If you feel you are short on time, then please do not take my little advise here. If, though, you feel that you would like to improve your answers, definitely take note of the first example, if not the second. 🙂

Hope you find this useful. Thank you!
