hello!

when answering an issues & debates question on paper 1, what does the AO1 consist of? e.g. if it's about ethics, would my AO1 be a description of what ethical considerations must be taken and then my AO3 is an example of this e.g. in Milgram's study...or is the layout different?

For issues and debates application questions - I'm even more stumped on the structure!

I understand and know the content for issues and debates, its more about how to actually set out the answer that's leaving me feeling unconfident about this section in paper 1

I'm a little confused so any help on the structure would be much appreciated!

p.s. this is for the edexcel exam board! I'm aware there are differences in the AO's depending on your exam board

Hi, I also always found it hard writing essays about issues and debates, especially about ethics.
Yes, for AO1 you have to do an introduction where you explain the ethics you should take into account, what is acceptable and not acceptable, ex: you can not give informed consent as long as you debrief the participants in the end, however, if the study is in humans you should never cause them any type of warm. Basically write some of the things you learned about ethics.
For AO3 you have to write strengths and limitations, if it an 8 mark 2 strenghts and 2 limitations and a 12 mark 3 strengths and 3 limitations and what I would pick some studies I learned where they were very unethical such as Milgram and I would say why the study was unethical and then I would choose studies that were very ethical.
Then never forget to write a CONCLUSION
Hope it helped
