4 marks usually require 2 Points with 2 explanations.

9 marks usually require 3 point-explanations.

12 marks usually require 4 and 16 usually require 5.

Those are just rough estimates though.

Is there anything specific you need help with?

Depends on the length of the exam. Take the total time for the exam in minutes and divide by the number of marks. It'll give you the number of minutes per mark. Sticking to 1 mark per minute is normally good, cause then you have time to check through your work, but make sure you work out how much time you have to spend on each mark.
