does a level psychology require writing essays in exams? Watch
yep! as far as i remember i did edexcel psych and there was big 20 markers asking describe and eval, or explain something, in A2 there were bigger ones i think 30 markers- alot of it was writing tbf, i remember coming out with my hand hurting haha!!
As for the question... during AS we had 12 markers and in A2 we had 16 markers. They are usually made up of marks for your knowledge and evaluation.. though some questions have less evaluation marks and have application in too.
So in A2 this year it was 6 marks for Knowledge and 10 for Eval... but in an apply essay it could be:
6 Knowledge (AO1)
4 Application (AO2)
6 Eval (AO3)
