Does anyone have any advice about an essay structure for 35 mark philosophy questions?

  • 0 votes

I have no problem with ethics essays as my teacher is rather unconventional and dislikes structure but I really need some help with the structure of philosophy essays

Just to be clear, this is for A2 as it is one 35 mark question

Well according to the mark scheme for OCR your essay needs to be well structured.

Begin with an introduction where you define important terms mentioned in the question and introduce the most important scholar.

Then 6-8 paragraphs, going scholar/ argument explanation, pros, cons, then alternative scholar/argument and so on.

Then end with conclusion- "critically speaking, it is likely that... is the most appropriate view to take etc.
