# Length of 25 mark question? (AQA) watch

1. Hiya!

Can someone give me a rough average length of a 25 mark answer?

Thanks.
2. From a previous thread (related to econ)

25 mark structure would usually consist of

-2 solid definitions explaining the relevant keywords the question is asking (backed with examples if applicable)

-An introduction to the topic at hand, depending on whether it's macro refer back to macroeconomic objectives

-1st Diagram / Explanation of what's happening (from the text)
-Analysis of first diagram, (Chain Links) words such as 'therefore, in hindsight'
-Evaluation of first diagram, words such as 'although, other factors effect' talk about stakeholder's affected
(Evaluation is where you use your own knowledge to assess the impact of the ongoing of your analysis)

-2nd Diagram / Explanation of what's happening (from the text)
-Analysis of second diagram
-Evaluation of second diagram

-3rd Diagram / Explanation of what's happening (from the text)
-Analysis of second diagram
-Evaluation of second diagram

-Conclusion
This is where you weigh up your argument to come to a finalized conclusion; taking into account you're evaluation of the 3 Analysis points you've made. You say what overall effects may occur, the effect on the economy and add relevant concluding factors in regard to the question. Argue different viewpoints and say which you think has the higher weighting.

3. I see, all you've gotten is a response on economic exams...

You start with an intro defining key terms, then create a mini arguement highlighting your key points for the side you're in favour of.
4-6 arguments (4 paragraphs minimum.)
Conclusion.

If I make 3-4 arguments I like to include a paragraph comparing the strongest point or most suitable points of each argument And giving examples of where one side has been more superior. If I've made 5 arguememts, I do it more briefly in my conclusion.

So you should really be aiming for 6 paragraphs.

Saved this - cheers for that!
5. About a minute a mark, about 5-10mins per page page and a half (depending on speed) so 25 marks = 2.5 to 5 pages. The more the better as long as it is focused on the question.

I just wrote a book that will help you, it's called "How to write any essay and get a top mark! Or How to Hack the Religious Studies, Ethics or Philosophy A-level (& Politics and Other Essay) Exams…and get an A*!" For AQA, OCR, and Edexcel, New and Old courses! Unit/Course/Specification codes: 7061, 7062, 2060, 7171, 7172, 2175, H172, H572, H173, H573, 8RS01, 9RS01, 8RS0, 9RS0 and many more! Available on Amazon and all major outlets!

"This is such a useful book for all students of A level Religious Studies, Philosophy and Ethics. The style is student friendly and accessible, and the author brings to it his experience as a teacher and examiner. The highly practical approach is exactly what students need to negotiate the minefield of exam preparation and practice equipped with straightforward, realistic advice." Sarah K Tyler
