So i probably should have settled this before seeing as the exam is 2 days away but basically, how do i structure 16 mark essays on approaches in psychology?

e.g. in a question like “Discuss both the psychodynamic and humanistic approach. Include a comparison of approaches as part of your discussion. (16 marks)” Do i compare them when i write AO1 or do i write 2 separate outline paragraphs on them and then compare them in AO3?

Also, for AO3 do i still need to include typical evaluation points where i say “this approach is supported by research for example (name) did a study and found...”

My teacher literally never taught us how to write these essays so im very confused. please help!

Long story short i’m confused about HOW to compare these approaches in an essay.
