TAQ 4 - Disorders

Post by shellybuz »

Has anyone managed to stay within the word count for this TAQ?? I'm really struggling to get enough depth to my table without going way over the 400 words! 100 words per disorder seems a little mean for causes, symtoms, treatments and prognosis!!

Any ideas on how to reduce word count would be much appreciated!

Hiya

This is one of the ones that people would often send small books in before hand and so we simplified some of it, for the word count you're expected to do 2 disorders for gas and 2 for the circulatory system so I'd definitely keep the descriptions focused and concise, when discussing the causes it's a good idea to be exact but sparing as possible and use the word count on the symptoms and perhaps the medical interventions as well,

you'll find it gets easier with each one done so dont try to cover huge areas of illnesses, just the numbers within the questions

I hope this helps

Hello,

Is it enough just to compile lists under each heading within the table or should we be writing paragraphs?

So far I have written a list of symptoms and causes for each and I have already reached 200 words

Hey,

Does a disease count as a disorder? for example congenital heart disease.

Thanks :)
