    Hey guys, we're learning about the 40 mark questions in politics now and they just seem so much harder than the rest of the whole exam, any help or advice would be really useful especially on things like the length of the essay, and how to balance it.
    Thanks

    I've been doing those type of questions recently too and they are really difficult. For a 40 mark you need to have 7-8 paragraphs and depending on the question it could either be eight different points each time or eight points for a for and against argument. You of course must also have an introduction as well as a conclusion but my advice would be to research the types of questions and write them in timed conditions or for their points write each point out on flash cards and get friends to test you. I would personally say writing essays are more long and difficult but a lot more beneficial for the exam, remember you would only have 40 minutes to write one so the more you write the easier it becomes
    I hope this helps
