Answering Exam Questions

Many of the semester exams allow you to choose 2 or 3 questions to answer from a list.

The first thing to do once you have made your choice of questions to answer is to see how much time this gives you per question – and stick to it. If you overrun badly on the first answer it means that you have less time to answer other questions well. It is also probable that you are not writing a clear answer either! Leave space to come back to it at the end if you have time and go on to the next question.

For each question…..

1. Re state the question in your own words at the top. This shows the examiner your basic understanding and how you are thinking. It also helps you to frame your answer and focus your mind.

2. Write your answer plan. Choose the key words in the question and from these plan your answer. E.g. does it ask for examples, does it ask you to critically evaluate rather than discuss? What are the areas that you need to concentrate on? Use these key words and themes to form the basis of the answer plan.

3. Use your plan to write out the answer in full. Use theory and frameworks and cite references where appropriate. From an examiner’s viewpoint it is always good to see frameworks applied in context as it shows understanding.

4. Stick to the time you have allowed…...

...Ch 3 Critical Thinking and Discussion Questions 1. Outline why the culture of a country might influence the costs of doing business in that country. Illustrate your answer with examples. Answer: Since in a sense the entire chapter is about this question, there can be numerous reasons and examples of how culture influences the costs of doing business. Several are highlighted in the following sentences, but there could be numerous others. When there are simply different norms between how individuals from different countries interact, the costs of doing business rise as people grapple with unfamiliar ways of doing business. For example, while in the US we may get down to business first, and then get to know each other socially later, in many South American countries it is important develop a good social relationship before trying to discuss business issues. Different class structures and social mobility also raise the costs of doing business. If there are inhibitions against working with people from different classes, then the efficiency with which information can flow may be limited and the cost of running a business increased. A country's religion can also affect the costs of business, as religious values can affect attitudes towards work, entrepreneurship, honesty, fairness, and social responsibility. In Hindu societies where the pursuit of material well-being can be viewed as making spiritual well being less likely, worker productivity may be lower than in nations......

(Please limit your answer to 300 characters.) Although every afghan family suffers financial difficulties at some point due to the increasing rate of unemployment (which is mainly caused by lack of education and specialization) and my family was no exception regarding the issue, when compared to most of my friends and relatives, I was fortunate and privileged. My father earned enough for me to study without ever having to stop to support my family financially, but there were so many of my friends that despite being gifted, ambitious and outstanding students were in pursuit of better employment opportunities and faced financial difficulties constantly. Very often they had to give up their dreams of pursuing higher education and simply take care of their family’s needs, being the sole breadwinner in the family.

The Answers

...The Answers When presented with the question “What is religion?” my argument can go several different ways. I have my own opinion of religion based off my upbringing and how I was raised to think about it, but at the same time this course allowed me to see a different perspective of religion and what it does for people. The official definition of religion is “The belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers, regarded as creating and governing the universe”. The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about religion is the following of one or more Gods to seek guidance in life. People feel like they need to follow something or someone and that is known meaning for religion. In my opinion that following is the act of religion, the meaning and purpose of religion is different. After examining the the material throughout this semester I have concluded that religion is a structure that was put in place millions of years ago to provide guidance and an explanation for some of the things we will never know. We do not know how or why we ended up on this Earth, so people use religion as an explanation for that. It's comforting knowing that there is a God or Gods that put us here for a certain reason, and that is what religion gives us.There a lot of things in this world that are unexplained and we will never actually know why or how they happened, so people use religion and mystical experiences to try and become enlightened. The different beliefs and practices in......
