Command terms are keywords placed in your IB questions. Each command term requires you to answer that question in a particular way. Every IB subject has its own unique set of command terms. Make sure to learn your command terms and corresponding answer structures.


It would take too much time for the IB to provide full answers to all its questions. Instead, they provide their IB Examiners with a list of keywords that they expect a student to use in answering a particular question. Missing keywords will lead to a lower score.

Similar to keywords, the IB expects you to use the right diagrams at the most appropriate times in your answers. Every diagram must be accompanied by a corresponding explanation.


Often overlooked, the style of writing answers is the key to getting a 7. Even though many students understand all the concepts and are confident of reproducing information in the exams, they are unable to achieve a score of 7 because they are not aware of the writing style required for Economics. 

Especially in essay based questions, knowing what to write about is not enough. Every answer requires brainstorming, an outline, the right keywords and diagrams, and an appropriate writing style. You may know everything, but you may not be able to express it in the way the IB wants you to. This is most often the case for subjects like Economics.

The writing style includes answer organisation, the depth and breadth of your analysis, arguments and counter-arguments provided, and a logical presentation of all your assertions with the appropriate choice of supporting evidence.
