Essay writing is something you can always learn to write as you go along. With psychology & sociology your teachers will go through on how to answer them because in the paper there are questions with different marks available and a different approach would be needed (i.e. same writing structure but the number of points needed & if you have a source or an item with the question- would be different)
Psychology its one paper that has all the small questions AND essays and the other psychology paper has small questions with one question worth 10 marks
Sociology - both papers there are smaller questions and essay questions.
