    How many paragraphs should i write in an e question and also how can i write it in the time i have and how do i plan them. Thanks for the help

    Hey S.Rahman,

    At my school we plan an E question like this:
    Paragraph 1- Some people think... (Two arguments to support the statement + evidence to back up the arguments) + other religious views or atheists/agnostics
    Paragraph 2- Other people think... (Two arguments to disagree with the statement + evidence to back up the arguments)
    + other religious views or atheists/agnostics
    Paragraph 3 and 4- Chosen Religious response... (quote or story to back up the idea, and if the religious response supports/disagrees with the statement) x2-3 times (Repeat this three times if you have enough time)
    Paragraph 5- State whether you agree or disagree with statement and religious views. Say what you think about the statement and the topic in general.

    My school expects us to write an E question in 15 minutes. I found this difficult at first but with a lot of practice, it will become much easier to complete. I advise that you write quotes and views next to the question before you start so you don't forget or waste time when you answer the question. Because a lot of evidence/examples help boost your marks/grade.

    Good luck!
