Well the thing is i got a pre release booklet with media texts and poems in in january to study for my exam on monday 16th may.

I was just seeing if most people don't do this specification bcoz the guy who posted the comment seemed really suprised and probably confused

I see, your rather lucky to get pre released material, as we just have to go in there and do the exam. (:

so what sort of questions do you have to do?

I also get an unseen non-fiction text as well as the quesion on the back

Okay so we have PAPER 1 and PAPER 2 also an English literature paper.

English literature we have 2 hours and half. 1st hour, 'of mice and men',  2nd hour 'bloodbrothers' and the 30minutes we have to do the poem , I have to do learn about 'Of mice of men', 'bloodbrothers' and we have to do questions on them. Also have a poem we haven't seen and I have to learn key words for it.

Paper 1 is about stories, we have to answer questions about two different stories and the language for the first hour, the second hour we get two things which is write a descriptive scene and a story, you get to choose what to write as they give you topics and titles to choose from.

Paper 2 is about leaflets, articles, you have to answer about 2 different article or leaflets for the first hour so we get questions and have to write about what included in them like the language, the second hour we get something like write an article and a letter,then have to do it, they give us what we have to write about.

so yeh 2 hour exam paper 1, 2 hour exam paper 2 and a 2hour and half exam for english literature!

Yours is so different, It is, I thought I do AQA :/ maybe I don't.

Posted: 25-04-11 13:12 by Rhiannon Britten

maybe AQA has different specifications within itself

Posted: 25-04-11 13:14 by Pui Pui

Maybe as all my exams are AQA and OCR :/ I am not sure! But good luck with your exam!
