Really struggling with 30 marks and revision in general, particularly this specimen paper question. Any revision tips and essay structure will vastly help. Thank you!

At each stage from pre-school through to university entrance, girls tend to do better than
boys. For example, on entering primary school, girls are more likely to be able to write their
own name. On the other hand, boys are more likely than girls to be assessed by their
schools as having special educational needs.
When it comes to subject choice at age 16, there are major gender differences in the
popularity of different A-level subjects and even greater gender differences in vocational
courses.

Applying material from Item B and your knowledge, evaluate the view that
gender differences in both subject choice and educational achievement are
mainly the result of the influence of wider society.
