Hi,

I was wondering how to structure psychology 4,6,8,12,16,24 mark questions for AQA A2 psychology? And is the way of answering the questions different for Issues and Debates,Gender or Schizophrenia?

If you're doing A2 AQA psychology then you won't be doing 12 mark questions - only 16 mark questions (12 markers are for AS). Also I don't think there are any 24 mark questions? Correct me if I'm wrong.

For 16 mark questions you need to write 6 marks worth of A01 - my teachers tell me that I need to write roughly around 150-180 words (1 paragraph).

Then you need to write 10 marks worth of A03 - the amount of A03 you write should be more than the A01(around twice the amount). You generally should be writing around 3-4 paragraphs. Make sure you write the paragraphs in an orderly way (e.g if 2 evaluation paragraphs link to each other, write one after the other)

My teachers say you need to write about 25 words per mark.
So...
4 marks = 100 words
6 marks = 150 words
8 marks = 200 words
16 marks= 400 words
(Rough estimates). I think this is important so that you don't under/overwrite (thus you don't lose marks due to not writing enough and have enough time to answer other questions as toy're not writing too much).

I don't think the way of answering is different for the topics. Unless there is a stem - if a stem/item is present then there will be A02 marks (just mention quotes from the item) and thus less A01/A03 marks than in question without items.

Idk about the other question types though I'm really sorry
