How to Ace the 15 Markers?

Theres alot to read here, so below is an intergrated AI to read the 'How to Ace the 15 Markers?' section.

Mastering the 15-marker questions undoubtedly presents a significant challenge. Having meticulously examined and responded to over half of these questions since the beginning of the new syllabus, consistently achieving scores of 13/15 and reaching a perfect 15/15 on four occasions, I have gained valuable insights into the intricacies of these assessments. Through a thorough analysis of my strengths and weaknesses, I have developed an effective strategy outlined below, which I believe is instrumental in excelling in the 15-marker questions.
Below is the form I suggest you should follow every time including structure, key words to use, intergration of knowledge and a bank of 15 markers to support your revision.


  • Point: [question] + [your point] + [agree or disagree]

  • Evidence: For example/This is demonstrated in/This is shown when

  • Evaluation: However/Others may suggest/A criticism of this is/This lacks credit because

  • Criticisms of Evaluation: However this criticism is flawed because/This lacks credit because/this argument is weak because

  • Link: Therefore/Linking to [question]/As a result

  • Intergration of Knowledge

Intergration of knowledge is very important in 15 markers, its easy to write an essay on why you agree with a statement but after evaluating my classmates answers to 15 markers and understanding how examiners mark essays, its important to know you need to include relevent citizenship studies information.

    Introductions and Conclusions

    Introduction: To kick off a Citizenship Edexcel 15-marker, start strong with a clear and engaging introduction. Begin by restating the question to show you've understood it. For example, if the question is about the importance of voting, you could start like this: "The significance of voting is a crucial aspect of democracy" Follow up with a brief overview of the main points you'll cover – this acts like a roadmap for your reader. You might say, "We'll explore the impact of voting on democratic societies, individual empowerment, and civic engagement however we'll also explore flaws of voting and voting systems within the UK." Keep it simple and to the point. Now, don't forget to use sentence starters like "In this essay, I will explore..." to guide your writing.

    Conclusion: Moving on to the conclusion, this is where you tie everything together. Restate your main point and summarize the key arguments you've made. If the question was about the role of laws in promoting equality, you could conclude with: "In conclusion, the role of laws in promoting equality is undeniable." Remind your reader of the main ideas you discussed – maybe mention the legal frameworks or case studies you brought up. Show you've answered the question by saying something like, "By examining the impact of laws on various aspects of society, from education to employment, we have illustrated their pivotal role in fostering equality." End with a powerful sentence that leaves an impression, like "In a world striving for fairness and justice, understanding and advocating for the importance of legal frameworks becomes imperative." This helps your conclusion stand out and leaves a lasting impact on your reader.

    Remember, keep it simple, use sentence starters, and always connect back to the question. Practice makes perfect, so keep honing your skills with the practice questions below, and for those of you with premium, emprace our accurate AI marking!
