6 Mark Questions
Examples from AQA B1
Body temperature
• What adaptations help a human to maintain a
consistent body temperature?
Method
• First, bullet point a few ideas or key words
relevant to the question.
• Next, put them into a logical sequence by
writing a number next to each one. You may
wish to add or remove points.
• Turn each one into a sentence, linking them by
describing causes and effects (so, which
means that, and then…)
Body temperature
• Hot
sweat
thirsty
• Cold
shiver
hairs on end
Blood flow?
Body temperature
• Hot
sweat 1
thirsty 2
• Cold
shiver 4 muscles/respiration
hairs on end 5 insulation
Blood flow? 3, 6
Example Questions
1. Explain how human actions have increased
the amount of carbon in the atmosphere.
2. Describe the stages of a reflex arc when a
person touches a hot plate.
3. How are medical trials tested before
widespread use and why?
Using the method
• For your question, write the bullet point ideas
and sequence them.
• Compare your order with your partner; would
you agree or disagree?
• What do you add when you take a moment to
think? What might you remove?
• How would you link these ideas together in
sentences?

Changes
• Each of these sets of bullet points is
incomplete. How do they compare to your
thinking?
• Write up possible answers in sentences then
discuss these with your partner. Do you agree
on a predicted mark?
• Use markschemes to check your score. Are
you making predictable or repeated mistakes?
