hi guys, i was wondering if anyone studies A-level religious studies
i need help writing an A02 15 marker for this question: religion has no satisfactory response to the challenge of the verification principle.’ Evaluate this claim. [15 marks]
I simply need to know the structure of how to write it and what to include in each paragraph.

For an A02 do you just need three paragraphs and a conclusion?

You do need a conclusion yes, which should just sum up the evaluative mini-conclusions you reached at the end of each paragraph.

You should do a short intro too.

3 paragraphs, each with one argument for/against the debate question, at least one criticism, (optional to defend against that criticism) and always ending with your judgement as to which of the two sides of the debate you will have represented wins and why.
