The “ONE question” referred to in each of the examinations for the above standards will have multiple parts, covering several aspects/topics of the internal/external factors. Candidates will not be required to write an essay, but for Achievement with Excellence, will be expected to write extended answers that involve evaluation. For each part, there will be bullet points indicating what the candidate should consider when writing the answer.
