I'm meant to be doing an English Edexcel past paper for homework and I'm worried about spending too much/little time on each question. How much would I need to write for a 16 or 24 mark question?

:wavey: Welcome to the site! You're unlikely to find help for this in the Welcome Lounge - that forum is just for people to introduce themselves rather than asking other questions. I've moved your thread to the Study Help forums, where you should be able to find others who can help you.

25 mins for 16 mark and 35 mins for 24 marks.

A 16/24 mark question is an essay essentially, well it is, so you need to write plenty in order to gain the marks.

This would definitely be over a full page (both sides of A4 lined). I write 12 markers in Psychology at A level and write over 2 pages sometimes! (But that's at A level)

As long as it's good quality and you've stated your point, explained it and given evidence for it then you should be fine!
