Hi everyone
I was just wondering if someone could help me with the timing on the english language paper, so how long to spend on each question. Only asking this because in the mock I did in January, I completely messed up the timing and didn't even get round to doing the 24 mark essay at the end and ended up getting a D in the paper :/

There are many different English Language exams. Can you please tell me the exam board you're taking (or the paper reference code)?

Write to argue for or against a view. Or it can be write to persuade a view.

It would seem that a suitable allocation is
Section A (1 hour)
Q1 = 12 min
Q2 = 12 min
Q3 = 12 min
Q4 = 24 min

Section B (1 hour)
Q5 = 25 min
Q6 = 35 min

Leaving a good spare 15 mins for reading, checking etc.
