Okay so this is G671, I guess she's struggling with structure and content to include in her answer then.

Here's a structure she can follow:

8 Mark
You gain four marks for your definition and four marks for your examples. Make sure that you define the key term used in the question (underline/highlight the keywords in the question) and use as many other key words as you can to show that you understand the term. Make sure that you also include at least two examples, as with just one example you cannot gain the full four marks for examples.

16 Mark
It should take the form of two clear paragraphs, with each paragraph containing one point. You are being asked to explain two points, so make sure you do two - don't do one or three.

Twelve marks are given for your knowledge and understanding in this question, and you will need to include studies, concepts, theories or examples in each paragraph. You will get four marks for your answer being relevant and applied to the question; quite simply you need to ensure that your are answering the question.

24 Mark
This is the mini-essay. You will need an introduction, three/four points and a conclusion. If you are doing three points, make sure they are well explained. In this question, the use of studies and/or theory is pretty much a necessity to get a high mark.

Twelve marks are given for your knowledge and understanding in this question, and you will need to include studies, concepts, theories or examples for each of yours points. Eight marks are given for your answer being relevant and applied to the question, and four marks are given for your evaluation and analysis of the overall argument.

52 Mark
There are various ways to structure the 52 mark question, but here's one way to go about it.

First of all, you want to introduce your argument. That means that you will want to define the key concepts (so if the question is on ethnography, explain what an ethnography is in the pre-release). Your introduction can be brief, so don't spend too much time on it.

You want to cover four areas in your essay: reliability, validity, generalisability and representativeness. Within each of those areas, you will want to talk about the sample, method and data in the pre-release, and relate it back. So for example if you are talking about the reliability of a question talking about ethnography, you will start with a sentence that introduces reliability (the ability of being able to repeat the research and gain the same/similar results) and then apply that to the method - why the ethnographic method is or isn't reliable. Then you will want to (more briefly) apply reliability to the sample and data.

Here's a few videos she can watch for help with the content:Other resources:Of course if she has anything else to ask then she can. I realised you said she's sitting these exams independently, so she can ask her exam center with help in order to get the pre-release. I remember my teacher telling me that there will no longer be a pre-release, not too sure on that though.

No problem!

I like to keep my email and number quite private.

Is it okay if she makes a TSR account? I don't mind helping her that way. Also it will be beneficial for her as people discuss the predicted questions on here.

Yeah definitely do.

Tell her to stay away from any noneducational forums. :rofl: Generally it will be very useful for her, if I can't answer something someone else will be able to. :yep:

You could keep an eye on her to see if she is posting in the wrong places.

ok just having a look, i strongly feel lke the relationship between parents and children may come up (17)

i also feel like two ways in which the family varies according to ethnicity may come up, (17) as it has only come up once in 2012

however, decline in family size as a 17 marker may come up too thats what i feel (idek what came up for 2015 but the first two predictions that i listed is what i thought wouldve alternatively come up for mine in 2014)
