    Okay so in CIE, for AS level, paper 1 is a source paper and has one 15 mark question and one 25 mark question. We get a total of one hour for this. In paper 2 there are a total of four questions. Two are ten mark questions and the other two are 20 marks each. Total of sixty marks.

    How long should each answer be?

    I've done a couple of school exams and my twenty mark answers stretch to about 2 and three quarters to three pages and my 10 mark answers stretch to two pages. My 15 mark answers are usually a page and a half or two for the source paper and the twenty five mark one stretched from three to four pages. I just dont know if this is enough :/
    How long are yours, usually?

    As long as it takes to reach a valid judgement on your question.
