    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?

    It's been a while since you posted and nobody's replied yet...maybe you should check out MarkedbyTeachers.com, TSR's sister site. It has the largest library of essays in the UK.

    They've got over 181,000+ coursework, essays, homeworks etc.. all written by GCSE, A Level, University and IB students across all topics. You get access either by publishing some of your own work, or paying £4.99 for a month's access. Both ways give you unlimited access to all of the essays.

    All their documents are submitted to Turnitin anti-plagiarism software, so it can't be misused, and the site's used by hundreds of thousands of UK teachers and students.

    What's more, you can take a look around the site and preview the work absolutely free. Click here to find out more...
