    Not sure if by long you mean time wise or pages. But answering both, we're advised to spend 15 minutes on it and obviously it depends on your hand writing but anywhere between 1-2 pages. More than 2 is good if you have enough time, but definitely more than one!
    I usually include 2/3 descriptive points/studies inc findings and then 3/4 evaluation points but it can vary.

    We got given these sheets for every essay question that has or could appear and as you can see one only needs two studies and 3 evaluation points but the other has more, so depends on the question
    The top of the second sheet gives you info as well

    My teacher recommends that they're 1 page, at a maximum 1 page and a half. I try to aim for 1 study in my A01 if it's relevant and 2 in my A02, but I go into quite a lot of detail into those studies. I know our exam board has this depth vs breadth trade off. So alternatively you can have lots of studies in your A02 but with less detail. Hope that helped/ made some sort of sense x
