    I'm sure that there are other threads on this topic as well.
    Paper 1 - 1 hour 45 minutes
    Section A - Reading non-fiction and Media texts e.g. newspaper articles, autobiography etc You will have to read 2 insert pieces on them and answer questions that are of a comprehension-style. You will be expected to spend about 1 hour on this section.
    Section B - You choose one question from 3 or 4 structured questions in which you seek to write to argue, persuade or advise the reader. Spend about 45 minutes on this section.

    Paper 2: 1 hour 30 minutes
    Section A - different cultures poetry that you have studied in class. There will be a choice of two questions, one from each cluster and you answer the question on the cluster you have studies - cluster 1 or cluster 2. The paper will provide you with a theme e.g. identity and ask you to compare how this is presented n the named poem and one other poem e.g. Presents from my Aunt. You should spend about 45 minutes on this section.

    Section B - Writing to inform, explain or describe. You choose from 3 or more structured essay questions. You should spend the remaining 45 minutes on this section.

    [I'm surprised your teacher hasn't told you all this information]

    Nice description, and yes there are threads about the same thing but i thought i may as well answer it.

    Yes- I thought the same; I wouldn't want anyone to go uinto the exam expecting the wrong thing. Don't be too impressed - it is paraphrased from the hand our given to me by my teacher.
