    It doesn't really matter how many pages you write, but the content and depth of the topic you're writing on. If you can describe all the relevant points in sufficient detail on a single page then you'll get very high marks, as opposed to people who write pages of irrelevant points. I guess a couple of pages would suffice.

    Ah right, thanks

    Was looking at the space given and I saw they gave around 5-6 pages...

    Yeah, the exam board don't expect you to write 6 pages worth in the space of 30 minutes or so. It's just for those exam lovers who like to intimidate people sitting around them in the exam by asking for extra pages to write on, then handing in 8 pages worth of useless and irrelevant content. You can easily discuss all relevant points in at most a couple of pages

    All the concepts can be highlighted either as separate points or as a continuous flow. You can add a few diagrams to boost your writing. A couple of pages would suffice I think.
