I don'd have any textbooks, but I find youtube videos, eg mrbruff pretty useful.

He talks about the papers by question.

Does having extra time mean that you have 131.25 min instead of 105 minutes for both paper 1 and 2?

Here's paper 1)

Paper 1)
Q1) 4 marks - 5/6 min
Finding facts from the text about something/ someone

Q2) 8 marks + reading and highlighting 12min

Q3) 8 marks 12 min

Q4) 20 marks - 25/30min

Q5) 40 marks (creative writing - writing a story using either a picture or a prompt) 50 min

Reading and highlighting the sources - 15 min

+ 5 minutes extra in case something goes wrong or you need to read over/ redo parts of your answers

Id recommend starting by reading the sources, then doing question 5. After you've done question 5 then start with questions 1 - 4. I found that reading the sources first gave me ideas for the creative writing bit

Paper 2)
Q1) 4 marks - 5/6min
shading boxes but can have tricks so you might need to spend extra time checking

Q2) 8 marks - Looking at both sources. 11 min

Q3) 12 marks 18min

Q4) 16 marks 25 min

Q5) 40 marks (writing to persuade) 50min

Reading and highlighting the sources - 15min

This should leave you with 5 minutes extra so you can use it for checking and stuff. Again, like paper 1 I recommend doing question 5 first and then questions 1 - 4
