    Hey! I was just wondering which questions do you give two points of view to?? I know for example you give two points of view to the 'is it reliable' question but do the marks indicate whether you give one or two points of view to the case? I normally just do two points of view for everything to be safe, but I realise that this is not a good method as I lose time in my exam! Please help!

    For the questions where you get to pick a question you do the following:

    a) 5 marks:
    - Asks you to describe
    - 1 mark for each point or 2/3 marks if you explain or describe the point
    b) 7 marks:
    - Explain why
    - Explain more than one reason ( 2 or 3)
    c) 8 marks:
    - Asks you to make a judgement
    - 2 sides and explain both reasons
    - Make a judgement and give reasons as to why it is correct
    - 'On one hand' for the 1st paragraph
    - 'On the other hand' for the 2nd
    - 'In conclusion' for the final paragraph

    Thankyou so much, this helped a lot! So the questions are all going to fit into one of them three categories? I would think so because I don't remember any nine mark questions..

    I do A with Public Health instead of Germany but this is mainly for the first paper right? Because I think the second is a slightly different format (which is the one with Public Health). The first paper being American West and Medicine Through Time.
