    Hi guys I just got a quick question regarding 12 mark questions in general. So regarding Ethics; if the question was 'You should always stand up to unjust governments’ would I lose any marks if I agreed with the statement but my argument is unbalanced so in the essay I have more points for disagree? Btw the exam board is OCR

    It's ok to have an overriding opinion and some questions can be hard to give balanced answers for, but you should really try and include an opposing point of view if you can.

    You can structure it however you like, and that seems like an effective way of doing it. As long as you get the information down it doesn't matter!
