Good luck to you too! I've got mixed feelings, I think it should be fairly easy but a bit stressed for some reason! Let us know how you do

Yes it's A*... on their website it says it's non-fiction analysis so I have been practicing with past AQA Paper 2s... that and revising the curriculum in general. Watch quite a few good youtube videos from teachers aswell.

There's a channel from a teacher called "Mr. Bluff" on youtube, he comes up when you look for how to answer AQA English papers. I've used BBC bitesize for the rest - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/examspecs/zcbchv4

I have especially looked at the below section on Bitesize:
Non-fiction text types - AQA
Purpose and audience - AQA
Language and structure - AQA
Responding to a non-fiction text - AQA
Sample exam question and answer - AQA

I used the bitesize link above, pretty much the whole curriculum content that could appear is resumed in there (at least I hope so )

I have it Monday morning.

How did you get on today with your test xx
It went alright I think! It's the old AQA model as stated on their website, so three sources. The first question asks you to synthesise the first source, the second question asks about feelings if I remember correctly, and the third one about the use of language. Then you have question 4 in which you have to compare both of them.

5 and 6 are quite freestyle and creative really...

The only thing I would suggest is that you plan your time correctly, as you are going to need the full two hours.

When is your test?
