Basically I have a mock of this paper coming up on Monday and I'm doing some practise questions but I am a little unsure how long in length each answer has to be to achieve a good B/A/A* grade?
I've heard 'its about the quality not quantity' but is the best part of a page for each question a good benchmark for 6-7 marks?
Heres some examples of answer length I am a little unsure of:
'How does he writers use of language in the article shape the readers response?' (one page?)
How effective is the presentation of the advert and the article (two pages?)

umm i took the gcse english aqa exam and on the reading paper i wrote about 3/4 of a page for each one, don't know if it's enough but i'm aiming for the same grade as you and my teacher said it was alright as long as i didn't ramble on...
i'm still waiting till Janurary for my result
good luck for your mock

Same as above poster, I usually write half to 3/4 of a page, dependant on the marks availible and the difficulty of the source. I find picking out three or four points and explaining their relevance to a good standard gets good marks

Are these the A1, A2.. 10 mark questions?
We've always been told to write 3/4 of a page as an ideal. I normally write less, though. Just make sure that you have 10 well explained points for each.
