basically you do one long paragraph on the benefits with 5 linked strands and context, then again for negative, then a conclusion which sould be another analysed paragraoh either for or against depending on what u chose and context weaved in everywhere throughout

Aye just do a few bullet points, that’s what I got told. Use some case studies and drawbacks. Good luck 👍🏼👍🏼

We do: one impact/advantage/anything is …. This is because… link to case study… this leads to… therefore…however this depends on… Do that again but with a disadvantage. Do the same for the conclusion with another positive or impact and talk about another negative impact too and a this depends on… sorry if it’s confusing but good luck!
