    How many paragraphs do you need for section 1 and section 2?? do you have to do introduction?? (I'm doing inspector calls and omam)
    Hiya :)
    Basic rule of thumb is 3-5 paragraphs for each question (So 3-5 paragraphs answering the Inspector Calls question, 4 short paragraphs on the OMAM Section 1 question, then 3-5 detailed paragraphs on the OMAM Section 2) but remember that quality is far more important than quantity. At the end of the day, you just need to write as much as you can without dropping on quality - whether that's 2 pages or 7 pages that should be your goal.

    It is best to do an introduction and conclusion for each section (you can do for each question in the OMAM Section but it's not required); you won't get any specific marks for it but it will please the examiner and is the proper technique for answering essay-style exam questions.

    Hope that helps :)

    Heyyy I'm doing the same novella and play my teacher advises me to write 3-4 paragraphs for AIC, depending on how fast you write. You do have 45 mins for this section so use it wisely! And for OMAM part a) 2 paragraphs, one on structure and one on language and then part b) 2-3 paragraphs also including language and structure. I hope you do well, good luck

    I have no idea what petal is sorry, but just remember to contain point, evidence, explain, ANALYSE A LOT!!!, effects to readers, writers intention, and for part b for OMAM you need a lot of AO4 which is context (e.g the Great Depression) whereas for part a) you need a lot of AO2 which is analysing as you are provided with the section you need to answer from
