I would say try not to think of it in terms of word count or length on a page, but try to think about how much time you would have in the exam to answer the question. The 15 marks is out of 75 for the paper which works out at 20%, therefore you should aim to spend 20% of your time (24 minutes, assuming you don't have extra time) answering this question.

It is also worth thinking about which points to include in your answer, so a brief plan, or even just underlining some examples in the passage, is worthwhile. You want to make sure that you cover the whole passage, rather than lots of detail on the first 5 lines or so, but then running out of time to say anything about the rest.

If you want to send me a PM with your email, I'll forward you some practice questions if that would be useful?
