talk about the RAVEN criteria (Reliability, Ability to see, vested interest, expertise and neutrality) for each person, use two RAVEN points for each person. Minimum of two people for and two people against then come to a final, balanced judge/conclusion (structure below) :D

1- introduction - open the debate

2- Raven of person 1a --> For

3- Raven of person 2a --> against

4- Raven of person 1b --> For

5- Raven of person 2b --> against

6- Balanced judgement/conclusion

As long as you use the right structures and analyse the evidence correctly you should get full marks :)

I find it best to plan the answer first, including all the points in a logical order. That will hopefully improve the standard of your answer.

Good look with your revision :D
