Here's an example paper (http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/245359-...ychology-1.pdf)

Here's how it's marked (http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/237232-...ogy-1-june.pdf)

Q24 command words are describe and evaluate. The question is worth 10 marks.

Describe means I need to include AO1 (knowledge) evaluate means I need AO3 (evaluation). That's 5 marks for AO1 and 5 for AO3.


For the higher mark band they're looking for:
"A thorough description of the main features of the study which includes procedure and findings. This is done with accuracy and clarity.
Evaluation offers breadth and/or depth, and points are coherent and relevant.
Quality of written communication is at least good, and uses psychological terms. Accurate spelling, punctuation and grammar."
