It says on my exam timetable list thing that it is 90 minutes but I'm confused... is it meant to be 90 minutes x 2 (3 hours)? Are there 4 essays to write or just 2?

Is it pick 1 essay out of 4 choices for philosophy and the same again for ethics, 45 minutes each.

Or is it, 2 essays for philosophy and another 2 for ethics, and pick out of 4 choices, giving us 3 hours?


*posting in this forum too just in case because i think its better here than the other place i posted. x)

Hey, not sure about Philosophy but for Ethics you will have the option of 4 questions I believe. You pick only two questions of your choice to answer, 90mins for both papers. So that would be roughly 40mins on each question although how you spend your time is completely up to you. Hope that helps

It's 90 minutes on the 10th for philosophy, two questions, and then 90 minutes on the 17th for ethics

I don't understand how hard this is:

Tommorow - We get one paper, on that paper there are four questions, we do two of them in 90 minutes.
This roughly means we do 41-2 minutes per question (if you include planning, checking and faffing with papers/supplement booklets).

Each essay is worth a maximum of 35 marks each:
21 marks (AO1) for knowledge, description and understanding
14 marks (A02) for analysis, evaluation and critical thinking.

Grade boundaries are relatively fixed, with about 27/28 out of 35 required for an A.
