    Just wondering, how do you revise for Paper 1 and Paper 2 of English with the exam board WJEC. Also, what does each paper involve?

    Thank You ;D

    At school we revise by completing questions from past papers. Trust me, it really helps. Remember to stay focused on the question during the reading questions and to try to fit in ten different points when answering them (as they carry 10 marks). For the writing questions, revise how to write articles, reports, letters (informal and formal) and leaflets.

    Here's a breakdown of the papers:

    Paper 1:
    Section A (40 marks - spend about 55 minutes on this)
    4 questions about an extract. You have to read the lines it says to read on each question and answer the questions using those lines from the passage.
    Section B (40 marks - 1st question - 25 minutes, 2nd question - 40 minutes)
    The first question, I think, is a descriptive question and you just describe a scene they tell you to e.g a fish and chip shop.
    The second question is a narrative piece and you can pick from a selection of titles.

    Paper 2:
    Section A (40 marks - spend about 50 minuites on this)
    4 questions on two texts (which are normally leaflets, articles etc.)
    Section B (40 marks - spend about 70 minutes on this)
    There are two questions where you have to write an article, letter or a report etc.

    Hope that helps

    Thank you sooooo much
    I will revise by doing past papers ..
    I am okay with the comprehension type questions however the writing story ones and describing poems, I find hardest..
    However, on the WJEC website there are no mark schemes so when I am marking them, i wouldn't know how to improve?
    Thanks again
