Mock Exam in October

1_mock exams

You will be sitting another mock exam in English Language in October, before the half term break. This will be the same format as the mock you sat last June. The exam is 2 hours 15 minutes. It has 4 reading questions which will require you to demonstrate the various reading skills based on 3 written sources. Then in the writing section of the paper, you will have 2 questions which will ask you to write to explain/inform/describe (question 5) and write to persuade/argue (question 6).

Advice on how to approach these questions can be found here.
