    As the title says? how much time do you have to fill in the exam paper?

    According to the Specification:
    http://www.edexcel.com/migrationdocu...4%20250510.pdf

    AS: 1 Hour 15 minutes
    A2: 1 Hour 30 minutes

    However if you look at their specimen papers
    http://www.edexcel.com/migrationdocu...e_20110111.pdf

    http://www.edexcel.com/migrationdocu...e_20110127.pdf

    AS: 1 Hour 30 minutes
    A2: 1 Hour 45 minutes.

    Which is 15 minutes longer for each.

    Does anyone know what is the actual length?
