    Writing 24 markers can be different to writing the 20/12 markers in the other unit, but once you're used to it, it's not so bad.
    Best way to start when you get a question (any questions, I woudn't be too fussed about predictions) is brainstorm everything you know around the question. Literally everything, your question paper should basically be a mess and afterwards group them or number them into points or paragraphs (Usually, I end up with 2 paragraphs on perspectives, then like 1-2 studies as points and 2-3 statistics - I'm not too good at remembering studies for Families but it does the job). So lets say the question is something like "Assess the contribution of Feminist sociologists to out understanding of Childhood":
    - Make a paragraph on your first point on feminism and childhood and end it with a second point which criticises or supports the view and elaborate on how (make sure you're answering the question)
    - Keep repeating this, I guess, until you run out of feminism points and then continue to make paragraphs on criticism
    If the question is something like "Assess the impact of social policy on family life", do the same thing, brainstorm your points (I did this question by thinking of all the social policies ie. welfare, and thinking about what each perspective would say about them. I'd use statistics if I could remember any and studies if I could remember any). So:
    - Intro: Define social policies (and what its possible impacts on family life would be)
    - 1st: 1 Social policy, its impact (with support or criticism from all or at least 2 perspectives)
    - 2nd, 3rd, 4th .... Do the same
    - Conclude with the impacts


    I hope this comes as a bit of help
