    Usually for a six mark question, you should write about three key topics in the area and expand on them in detail. For example if we had a question about respiration in biology for 6 marks, you would have to talk about, using specialist terms and linked statements, three aspects of respiration e.g. human respiration and aerobic respiration and anaerobic respiration. Usually about 8 - 12 lines are expected for these questions, and if you do use specialist terms and link statements you will get into the higher levels. Hope this helped! smiley - smiley
