How many paragraphs of AO1 and Ao2 is recommended for 16 marks?
I tend to find that there is a lot of AO1 to cover and limited time to do so.
I know the AO3 aspect is more important, so what do you recommend the ideal paragraph distribution should be?

Thanks

As ambiguous and unhelpful as this is going to sound;
There is no set amount of paragraphs for each AO, especially since certain studies/topics will require a lot more, for example an essay on gender bias is not going to need anywhere near the amount of outline that one on Bowlby's maternal deprivation hypothesis. Just go through each outline bit by bit, spacing it in paragraphs where it's a natural break in the writing.

I think about 3/4 of a page for A01 so about 2-3 paragraphs and for A03 either 3 really good ones or 4 mediocre ones for the full 16 marks

I know quantity doesn't matter but you should be looking at doing 2 sides of work.
