    As long as you have done at least a paragraph on each side of the arguement and a conclusion you should be fine.
    1 paragraph each some and conclusion will get you 10 marks maximum, regardless how dense your points are. And to get those 10, it would have to be PERFECT! 25 mark, 2/3 each side. 40 mark, 4/6 each side with a LOT of depth and examples in every single paragraph

    guys stop worrying about what points you got and what you did not. Structure, grammar, the way your answer the question all plays a large factor.
    Thankfully grammar and spelling doesn't actually count for the exam so that's one bonus I guess (there are no marks for spelling and grammar in case anyone didn't realise)

    I think what vine was trying to say, or at least how I see it, is that you guys should relax now. Nothing you can do to change your exam, best thing is to try and forget about it rather than stress about marks.

    That's nonsense, if you did what I said you will get more than 10 marks for sure because you've given a balanced answer and your judgement, which is the main thing, the rest is just detail.

    I did 4 big paragraphs and I'm pretty certain I'll get over 30/40.

    Don't be sonsure of yourself...

    In some mark schemes I've read, it clearly states that the candidate must include 3 paragraph for each side. So we'll all see
