Psychology alevel AQA - evaluation

For evaluation questions, is it required that you have both strengths and weaknesses? As in will you get marked down if you only write about strengths, or vice versa? Thanks :smile:
To my knowledge no they won’t give you less marks for only writing strengths or only writing weaknesses. There are a lot of studies that we can only evaluate with limitations. However where you can it’s good to talk about both to show a really good understanding. You can even simply talk about the research methods used to find a strength or weakness if you are struggling. Like it it’s a lab experiment it’s highly controlled and reliable.
