Roughly how long (and what needs to be included) in 12, 16 and 20 marker questions
An example from the set 2 specimen papers paper 2:
"You will have learned about social explanations of crime and anti social behaviour. Evaluate social learning theory as an explanation of crime and anti-social behaviour (16)"

I have included:
what SLT is and examples like violent video games
Bandura's BoBo dolls
Becker et al
Self-fulfilling prophecy as an alternate explanation
Rosenthal and Jacobson
Conclusion

Is this enough or do I need more? I can Gage the other 2 marker questions based of this one. Thanks

I think this is enough as long as you've applied them to the question however i would also give a brief definition of crime and anti-social behaviour before the evaluation. Good luck in the exam.
