Even though you are answering in prose, starting a new point on a new line helps both you and the examiner. Donโ€™t forget to include equations too. They will score marks.

Sometimes units will need to be converted before they take their place in the equation eg distance always has to be in metres and you may be given, in the question, a distance in centimetres.
