Reading time for paper

  • 1 vote

I have been told that you get 15 minutes reading time for the AQA GCSE Language paper in order to read the three sources however on the paper it doesn't say anything about this and only says 'before you start writing read through all six of the questions you have to answer and three reading sources.' It doesn't actually say whether the 15 minutes is seperate or just part of the whole exam. Please help someone!

Hi!
When i did this exam on January, the 15 minutes were separate. We had the 15 mins first, and were not allowed to start the exam paper during the reading time. So in that case, we had made notes all over the sources and etc.
I think your invigilator will say you have 15 mins warning time, as well as stating when it's finished.
If i remember clearly, it states that you have "15 min" reading time on the advice section at the front of the page.
Good luck with your exam!
Hope you do well! (:
