8700 AQA English Language Practice Paper 1 Animals

Aimed at students studying GCSE or year 9 starting our on their GCSE course, this practice paper includes two sources and exam style questions. I have also included a suggested mark scheme for teacher to use that works alongside any official Paper 1 mark scheme from AQA. Resource can be used as a formal assessment or as a 'walking talking mock' with the teacher guiding the students through the paper question by question. Good as an introductory paper as the first article is quite short and won't overwhelm students.
