    For Literature, how long are you planning to spend on the unseen and then the paired texts?

    Section A is worth 40 marks whilst Section B is worth 60 marks.

    Would it be sensible to split my time:

    1 hour 15minutes for A
    1 hour 30minutes for B ?

    As you only have 2 hours 45 minutes to do the paper

    165 minutes, 100 marks.
    165/100 = 1.65 minutes a mark, so:
    40*1.65 = 66
    60*1.65 = 99
    So roughly 1 hour 5 minutes for A and 1 hour 40 minutes for B.

    (I really hope that's right or I'll look stupid)

    haha, don't worry it's right. ^^ 66 & 99 is what my teacher said was best.
