Hey, I'm doing my English Literature exam tomorrow, and I just need to check the timings.
For section A, I'm doing An Inspector Call and for section B, I'm doing Of Mice and Men (which has two questions),
How long would I spend on each question.
(BTW, I'm guessing for section A it would be 45 mins... right? But what about each question of section B??)

I'm doing the woman in black and of mice and men.

So I'm guessing you have one essay question for an inspector call, which is basically my woman in black question, I usually spend 40 minutes on it because I think it's easier to get into one essay in a shorter amount of time and leave 50 minutes for of mice and men cos it's a bit more stop and start and there's a little more planning to do.

Then within of mice and men I spend 25 minutes on question (a) and 25 minutes on question (b) because you should be writing about the same amount for each section.

However, previously I used to spend 30 minutes on (b) and 20 minutes on (a), cos I was still getting used to context writing.

Overall, just sort out your time into what you do quickest and what you find easiest. There's no point spending loads of time on the type of question that you find easy.

I'd say split the two questions into 20 minutes each, and use the remainder to plan any answers if necessary, or check your work.

Of course I'm assuming that Section B is 45 minutes.
