I have struggled this year with essay writing, with both structure and timing. So I'm here to ask what is the best way to write one of these essay's for the best mark?
But how much evidence should you use ugh

I think PEEL (point, evidence, explain, link) is a great way to structure the paragraphs of your essay.
You need as much evidence as is need to back up your point. Let's say you made the assertion "Britain's economy boomed because of colonialisation". The next bit would be the evidence; maybe it would only need to be a couple of statistics to show that or another scholar who has argued that. The bigger bit of the paragraph is the EXPLAIN; why is the point you are making important and how does it relate to the essay as a whole.
Hope that helps a bit.
