P.E.E  is a simple way of answering essay questions. P.E.E stands for "Point, Evidence, Explaination". This very easy formula allows you to structure your answer, and therefore making it easier for the examiner to read, and allowing you to access the high marks.
Firstly, you state a point. This can be as abstract or as simple as you want it to be, but it must be proved. Consider this the foundation of your answer, and with any good foundation, it must be strong.
Next comes evidence. This is where you can show off your analytical skills and use the text to prove your point. Find a part of the text that you can apply to your point, and prove it.
Finally, explaination. This wraps up your point and the text itself, and makes it clear and understanding to the examiner marking your paper, that you can prove the point you have made.
