Suggested differences if the question was >8 marks

  • if this was a 12 marker it would be band marked (ATCHOO-BC)
  • you would need AO3 chains of reason relating to strengths and weakness of the case study as a research method, which relate specifically to Lavarenne et al (2013) and carry forwward your accurate and thorough AO1 knowledge and understanding of procedural details of this study
  • you would need to ensure that you have argued against the point that you have just made at some point in the answer, to tick the competing arguments box
  • you would need a balanced conclusion, if it was a 20 marker you need to take considerable time over your “nuanced” conclusion.
