A level sociology 20 mark question watch

    • Thread Starter

    How many points do you make and general structure tips? Thanks.

    For a 20 marker if they are really sound points you can probably get away with three points plus an introduction and a conclusion as long as all your points are evaluated but it is better if you can put in a forth point and at max 5.

    I'd say make 4 points to stay on the safe side, including a into and conclusion (but make them short and direct as they don't really count towards ur marks). My sociology teachers told us to use 'PERCY' structure - which is really helpful - it stands for point, explain, research, criticism and why is it relevant (thus you're referring back to the context of the question or any material/item you've been given).
    I hope that helps. And Good luck in a levels
