And what is the structure you use for this type of question?
QUESTION IS WORTH 15 MARKS
The structure that I always used was to write (or type in my case) an answer consisting of three paragraphs. In each of the three, I'd talk about why an element of SITE (settings, ideas, themes and events) made a certain theme or aspect of the excerpt successful. Obviously, I'd omit the element of SITE that I thought was irrelevant (this was usually the 'setting' element).
All of my paragraphs in this question (Q4 on Paper 1 and Q6 on Paper 2) would always begin with 'evaluative' language to show my focus on AO4 (e.g. 'masterfully manipulates', 'cleverly crafts', 'the writer's exemplary inclusion of...' etc.). After that, I'd include the element of SITE my paragraph would discuss and embed a quote. Then, I would delve deeper into this aspect of the excerpt and also explain its effect on the reader to end the paragraph. I would repeat this process until I had made produced three paragraphs.
Three in-depth paragraphs are as sufficient as four paragraphs (which is what was actually recommended).
It does have you read the mark scheme? I didn’t say sit on on fence I mean include counter arguments such as “some might argue that.... however this is outweighed by....” this is only OCR though I’m not sure if you must do it for AQA
Okay? The question didn’t state which exam board and I never said it was integral it was just a piece of advice because for the top marks it says “Arguments and counter-arguments are stated in their strongest forms”
There is no fifteen-mark question that solely focuses on AO4 with OCR. I have just checked both of their papers and their mark-schemes. I don't know why you would assume it was them. The OP also mentions 'how successfully', which is phrasing that is used in Edexcel's AO4 questions.
