Someone please help! :confused:

I am currently going through past papers from my Sociology A2 exams in June and I am practising 33 markers but I have no idea how much I need to write to get a high amount of marks (27-33).

Can anyone help or share how much they write, typing and hand-writing?

Thanks!

Point i.e. make a point about the question you are asking.
Explain i.e. explain the point, defining any key terms, theoretical points and other explanatory details.
Evidence i.e. if you are making a point about hegemony and Marxist theory, bring in theorists who support what you are saying.
Evaluation i.e. whether you agree with it or not - bring in contemporary examples to support what you're saying.
Link i.e. round what you are saying off with relevance to society. Again if you're discussing Marxist perspectives on society, you would make a comment on the relevance of Marxist theory in conclusion to what you are saying.

In terms for length, I'd say at least 40 minutes on a 33 mark question for your unit four paper.

I just recently did a mock exam (just a 33 marker) and in the 50 minutes I wrote 3 full sides of A4 and a paragraph on the 4th side.

It was a fairly broad question: ''Critically Assess the view that Secularisation is only a feature of modern european society (33)''

I got 27/33
