Examiners are looking for students to develop their analysis diagrams in exams. In this video we look at four examples of how you can do this.

Developing Diagrams for A* Analysis

Diagrams should be ACE!

That means remember to label the Axes, Curves and all Equilibrium points.

You also need to remember your ABC’s with diagrams – Accurate, Big and Clear

Simply drawing a diagram from memory will likely only allow you to gain AO1 marks.

To access higher-skill marks, you will need to make a change or adapt your diagram – perhaps shift a curve or indicate an important area – develop your diagrams!
