What is the difference between paper 2 question one and paper 3 question one for english language? The markscheme awards the marks differently but what changes in terms of structure of exam (how is a letter in paper 2 going to be different to a letter in paper 3)
Many Thanks

for paper 3 Q1 you can write more and it is a lot more creatively based, only 10 of the 25 marks go to the ideas and content from the passage. The other 15 are for your vocabulary, tone, opinions, grammar and context. You get a lot more marks than in paper 2 for your style of writing and tone.

on the other hand paper 2 you only write 250-350 words and only 5 of the 20 marks are for your writing style, it is more about responding to the content of the passage you are given
