For example, the first 5 mark question seems pretty straight forward, but is there anything mandatory or specific that I need to do in order to get the full 5 marks.
And, are there any key differences between AS and A2 in the way the essay questions should be written?
To get the full 5 marks you need to back up your points with evidence using the correct unit of measurement which is simple enough
No there isn't much difference with the essays, although you have a lot more time on them at A2 than AS so you are expected to have atleast 3/4 explored, analysed and evaluated points rather than just a couple. Also using real-world examples are expected more, especially in unit 4.
