    So would I do 3 points and give more explanation or do 6 points?

      6 points in my opinion but good question!

      5 marks - 1 easy sentence

      5 x 6 = 30 marks

      So this where I find that 6 points should be how much to write. However, make sure to give a bit of explanation on each, do not just state.

      For thirty marks you should have about 1 page written

      Yeah that's another way of saying it. 6 points you could fit into 5 paragraphs I think and that is like a page.

      You should have an opening para a closing para and at least 4 detailed point. The closing and opening dont have to be too long just three to four sentences.

      using the pqe structure, you should have 5-6 paragraphs

      My teacher said for 10 marks about 3/4 of a page.. So for 30 marks 2 and a bit.. It worked for me anyway

      It's 1-2 paragraphs for 10marks, 2-3 for 15 marks, 3-4 for 20 and 5-6 for 30 using the point,quote,explain structure. It also depends on how much you yourself can write in the time limit

      for 30 marks, you want 5 PQE +intro and conclusion

      for 20 marks, you want 4 PQE +intro and conclusion

      for 15 marks, you want 3 PQE "

      for 10 marks you want 2 PQE "

      This is how much for an A standard, but i presume you need less if youre aiming for a lower grade
