    I have the AQA english lit unit 1 exam tomorrow, how much are you supposed to write for the 2 parts of Section A + B?

    We have 45 minutes for Section A, we're recommended to write 3 PEEEEE paragraphs if not 3 then 2 they should be on structure and language analysis. For Section B we have 25 minutes for Little a which is all language analysis and 3 paragraphs and for little b we have 20 minutes for 2 paragraphs on context and themes. Section B paragraphs should be written in the format of PEEE

    At my school, we are encouraged to write four paragraphs for each section. I'm not sure which texts you study, but for LotF in Section A, you choose one question and write four points on it, then for Section B (I study OMAM) you answer both questions, with two paragraphs for each.
    As you have 45 minutes for each section, to do 4 paragraphs, you can allocate yourself five minutes for planning and 10 minutes per paragraph for each one.
    Good luck, hope this helps!
