How much should you write for each question in an English language paper (roughly how many paragraphs)?

Quality over quantity.
To know what you should include in your answers for each question, I would suggest heading to AQA website on the Teacher Resources, where they explain what to include in each answer to get top marks.
Good Luck 😊

I did my GCSEs two years ago so I can't remember exactly, but I did something like this (I wish I didn't get rid of my stuff but oh well it was **** compared to my final exam):
Paper 1:
1) list
2) two paragraphs
3) two/three paragraphs
4) four paragraphs (but I'd always run out of time so it would be 2/3)
Paper 2:
1) choosing four statements
2) two/three paragraphs (3 if I had time and could actually find three differences)
3) three paragraphs
4) four paragraphs (again I never had enough time so barely did three)

I SUCKED at English all through high school, so I was pretty surprised when I opened my results and got 9 in lit and 8 in lang (I'd never get above a 6). My mind's a bit rusty, so this is what I can remember. I always ran out of time because I could never ******** my way through which is essentially the key in English (I had a closed mind so when it came to effect on reader, connotations I'd have NOTHING and I'd just repeat the same thing over and over).

Defo quality over quantity - I knew people who used multiple answer booklets in their lit exams and still barely passed, but I only used just over half and got a 9. I just never got how people can write so bleeding much in their exams it was crazy seeing them write and asking for more booklets.

You write however much you believe is necessary for you to meet all the criteria at the top level of the mark scheme.

I'll keep it in mind- it's the starting that's the hardest for me, I'm just procrastinating at this point :/
