    I was hoping if someone had a structure for the 50 markers?
    And is anyone aware where I can get hold of model answers?
    Struggling.

    Heya, I'm going to put this in the sociology forum for you as you should get more responses there.

    You should also check out the forum to see if there's any other threads there which might be helpful to you!

    The structure for the 50 markers should be:

    Brief intro outlining the general ideas of the questions, perhaps mentioning what theory links with the question best (for example, if it's a question about women being victims of crime, you'd link it to Feminism).

    Then 3 paragraphs each outlining the point you're going to make with a study to back that up. The important thing with the 50 mark questions is also that you add further development, so perhaps another theorist, a statistic etc.

    After each paragraph there should be an evaluative paragraph, countering the point you have just made.

    Finally, a brief conclusion.

    So this is how it would essentially be:
    Intro
    First Paragraph
    1st point with a theorist
    Further developed point, adding in another theorist

    Evaluation of 1st paragraph

    Second paragraph
    2nd point with a theorist
    Further development, add in another theorist or statistic to back up

    Evaluation of second paragraph

    Third paragraph

    3rd point with a theorist
    Further development

    Evaluation of third paragraph

    Conclusion


    Sorry if that's a little confusing, it's quite hard to make it clear on here. But as long as you have evidence to back up the point you're making and developed answers with some contemporary examples if possible, you'll get the marks
