Top Tips for Success 1. Learn those key words! 2. Watch your timing – about 1 minute per mark. 3. Outline – describe, about three points, 2 sentences per point. 4. Explain – use the word BECAUSE and refer to the Bible and the Catholic Church teaches that … 5. Do you agree? … Always state why some people would agree, why others would disagree, and what your opinion is (and dont worry, if you dont have an opinion, make one up! The Examiner wont know.) 6. Write something for every question that you answer, and check your answers at the end. All the best!!
