    As it says in the title, how would you structure 8 and 16 mark questions in the 'Understanding and producing non-fiction texts' section of the GCSE English Literature course to gain full marks and keep it concise - all too often in past papers, I'm spending too much time on the 8 and 16 mark questions and not leaving enough time for the higher marked questions 5 and 6 because I don't know how to structure it well.
    Thanks.

    It may help to plan it out, draw a mind-map of the question and then try condensing it on the paper in the remaining allocated time. Should help. More time will be consumed if you just think it out of the blue.
