Has anyone got any advice for how to write longer questions in psychology? (Eg 8,12 and 16 markers?) I know the stuff I’m just really bad at writing essays

I did Edexcel Psychology last year and got an A, my 8 and 12 marker actually made it on the examiner reporter lol.

For 8 markers, restrict yourself to 12 minutes, 4 AO1 points and 4 AO3 points and do it as 4 paragraphs so your first paragraph would be 1st AO1 point and then AO3 that links to that AO1, then repeat this 3 more times.
Always write a conclusion for your 8 markers which includes a brief weakness and strength (so if your question was Evaluate Milgram's study according to ethical guidelines you can write in your conclusion, even though Milgram breached ethical guidelines - his study still has practical applications to society regarding how individuals will obey and authoritative figure)
Its better to not include practical applications as your AO3 because you can pretty much always write about it in your conclusion

I have a lot more advice but it would be too long to write here, if you want my notes and further advice just pm me
