Plan your response here in note form: no complete paragraphs, just dot points!
1. Introduce the question, very briefly. Something generic which just gives an intro into
the topic (trade) and the question (government, non-government). This isnt strictly
necessary, but it will help you get some momentum and start writing (rather than just
staring blankly at the page).
2. Describe the link: what is trade, how is it beneficial, why do countries trade

3. Describe the link

4. Identify the countries involved in the link our key trading partners.

5. Identify how government affects trade with examples

8. Identify how non-government (charity) affects trade

9. Conclusion: reiterate (summarise) key points made in the essay with minimal detail:
not necessary in an exam condition at this level, but might buy you goodwill with
whoever is marking this response.

Other things to note:


Discursive markers: signpost your essay to sound intelligent and smug!
Paragraphs should always, no exceptions be planned at least in list form before you begin
writing.
Paragraphs (unless you are given a plan like this one) should be numbered in importance
from MOST IMPORTANT to LEAST IMPORTANT this is particularly important if you
are arguing a point.
TOPIC SENTENCES ARE ABSOLUTELY AND COMPLETELY NECESSARY TO FORM
A COHERENT AND DEVELOPED RESPONSE. Make sure you have one, and stick to it.
Language: tone = FORMAL. I cant stress this enough.
Now, plan your argument on the next sheet paragraph by paragraph!
