    Okay thanks The first bullet point for the questions is mainly AO1 and AO3 and the 2nd is AO2. I was wondering if I should write my response to the first bullet point, then lead onto the 2nd or would it be better to blend them both in with each other?

    You can do either, but the more answers I've seen the more I think a two-part response is better. As long as you make links between the two parts and don't treat them as separate essays (e.g. make sure you refer to specific examples and quotes from the texts and data when you talk about wider AO2 themes) you should be fine.

    Quote from principal examiner's report for Jan 2011: "Often it was those candidates who wrote two "mini-essays" that did best as they were able to hit all the assessment objectives."
