When writing a 12 mark essay, how many pieces of research should you include, and should research be used as part of the outline or as an evaluative point?

Is your name anything to do with the serial killer Richard Ramirez? Just wondering.

Also, I'd usually use at least 2 studies in my outlining of a 12 mark question, maybe even 3 if 2 are not detailed enough to get the full 6 marks.

For the evaluative, research can be used here as well as in the outlining. E.g, if you've mentioned one study in the outlining you can say "A study that supports the findings of X is Y..." in the evaluative.

Hope that makes some sense

Yeah that made sense, except on AQA it's 4 marks outline, 8 evaluate.
Thank you very much!
Yes, it is about Richard Ramirez.

I'm on AQA and for AS I've been told it's 6 marks for each, which is what we have been taught for every essay and usually in the mark schemes it's 6 AO1 and 6 marks AO2 :confused:

Must change for A2, can't even remember doing 12 makers at AS which isn't a good thing.
