    Hi Everyone,

    I was just wondering about how many paragraphs people did in their 25 markers for paragraphs regarding the for and against sides. My teacher taught us to always do 3 on each side however when looking at online examples, a majority of people only did 2 paragraphs on each side and were still able to achieve good marks. I chose to do this option in my exam and am now a tad worried about whether or not I did the right thing...

    So to sum it all up, how many paragraphs did everyone do for their 'for' and 'against' arguments in their 25 markers


    EDIT: This is regarding the AQA AS politics exam

    Surely it depends on the depth you choose to go into regarding each paragraph.

    Saying AMS is more proportional than FPTP is one thing, but saying AMS is more proportional as shown by elections to the Scottish Parliament (provide egs) and commenting on the the closed list aspect (most proportional system) is another.
