What is a good approach to paragraph structure in 12 mark questions?

12 mark questions are usually phrased as a statement, and a question which asks your opinion on that statement. The key to structuring your essay paragraphs is to follow a Point, Evidence and Explanation (PEE) system. For example:

Question: 'God wants people to make scientific discoveries'. Discuss.

Paragraph 1:

Point: God makes it clear in the Bible that he wants us to make scientific discoveries.

Evidence: Genesis 1:26 tells us that man is made in God's image.

Explanation: This shows that we are rational beings, and we should use this to our full capacity through making scientific discoveries.

By making a clear point, supporting it with evidence and then explaining that evidence, you will have a strong argument and a clear structure.
