I currently have 4 flashcards relating to risks, types of risks and categories or risks (These are 'Risk a life drown cats', PNEFCPB, COMBEL, and one I made from an exam answer that suggests that risk categories are 'Model/ Parameter/ Random fluctuations') I also answer risk exam questions sometimes by thinking about the risk categories in SCR or ORSA work I have done before (quite similar to COMBEL.) and some risks seem common in exam answers but aren't part of these acronyms. These are great for generating ideas, but I often find when I come to mark my answers to past exam papers, that I'm talking about risks at the wrong level. Ie. sometimes It seems like I'm being too specific - maybe using 'Risk a life drown cats' when the examiner wants higher level categories of risks. At other times I feel like I'm being too high level - maybe talking about categories like COMBEL instead of specific risk events. The number of marks on offer does not always seem to be a good indicator. I have noticed shorter questions where a small number of detailed risks are given in the answer, or longer ones which still seem to require a higher level generalised view of risks. Does anyone have any guidance on how to use these acronyms responsibly? Are there any clear clues regarding how specific to be about risks? Maybe these are each used in a different context and I'm missing the bigger picture in each case?
