A Level English Language Paper 1 Student Model Answer

3 student example essays for paper 1 of AQA A Level English language. Written by a student who got an A*.

A students MARKED responses to three language and the individual questions:
- Analyse how language is used to create meanings and representations
- Analyse how language is used to create meanings and representations
- Explore similarities and differences in ways text A and B use language

The paper was awarded an A overall so is a great example of what ambitious students should be aiming to produce. However it is beneficial for ALL students because it provides a fool proof example of how responses to these questions can be structured and the balance of grammar and interpretation needed.

Each essay response is annotated by an examiner for AQA, has the mark for each AO at the end and suggestions for improvement.

This could be used simply to show students a good response to the paper or another suggestion would be to crop off the mark awarded and students asked to assess it themselves.

Hope this helps give some guidance when there is currently limited material around for the new spec :)
