    Does anyone understand the format of the questions or the number of allocated marks for each question as I understand that OCR have changed the format of the questions or something like that? Does anyone know that could help out?

    Thanks

    I believe that the format is:
    • 15 marks for question 1 or 4 (the source questions)
    • 26 marks for question 2,3, 5 or 6 (choice questions)
      - 4 marks for A
      - 6 marks for B
      - 10 marks for C
      - 6 marks for SPaG
    • 20 marks for question 7 (the depth study source questions)
    • 20 marks for question 8 or 9
      - 4 marks for A
      - 6 marks for B
      - 10 marks for C
      - 0 marks for SPaG
    • 81 marks for the whole of paper 1 & 53 marks for paper 2
    I sourced this information from a specimen paper so it might be different in the real exam.

    Thank you! Are you aware of any changes from last year as I've heard a lot of discussion about a 16 mark question? I'm really not too sure, but thank you for this!

    If you include the 6 marks for spelling, punctuation and grammar in addition to the 10 marks for question 2c there is a total of 16 marks. Also, paper 2 has a question with 19 marks including 3 for SPaG.
