How do you structure an English Literature a level ‘to what extent do you agree question’?
I can never get in the top band for to extent questions in both history and English literature. Any tips?

In the introduction, introduce key components you'll talk about in your essay. Then, I usually start with the 'agree' side, and it'll be like a theme, e.g."The Kite Runner exemplifies the dominance that men hold over women and this hegemony is shown to be ingrained in Afghan culture. Hosseini illustrates this through..." And then I'll basically do PEEL for each point/ evidence of men dominating women.
Then I'll do against, however...,
And then in conclusion, just a brief summary of points and I usually include what I think - but I do this discreetly and don't use I, so however, to a larger extent....
Got an A* for Lit and this was the formula I followed on my essays.

Yeah.
lol, how did your teacher 'hate' them? Isn't it the most common way to structure your answers? If you're not doing it GCSE level and expanding your answers? e.g. including authorial methods, perhaps throw in a bit of debate and context.

They seem rather basic. Even AQA state that they can be limiting.
