A Level Sociology (struggling year 13 student) - 30 markers.

I really need help with structuring my essays for sociology. I've watched so many videos but i still do terrible.
I want to be getting 20 and above for my thirty markers but right now I'm only getting around 10.
How do I structure a introduction? cause I never know what to write, they just seem useless to me but my teacher ALWAYS puts feedback on them saying i need to write more but than he says in lesson it only need to be a couple of lines :frown:.
Also, how much do I need to explain in a paragraph once i've made my point to get in the top band?
Any extra help would be helpful.

hiya, an intro should be a couple of lines basically with extra info eg. if it’s a question about social class differences or something you could briefly outline what marxists, feminists and functionalists believe and how/why they they differ and maybe link to wider society, intros do not have to be extremely long, in some cases intros do not rlly even matter but i always make sure to write a few lines (3 at most)!! hope this helps
