A Word document of the entire Unseen Paper 4, this resource is ideal for allowing students to practice analysing unknown texts. The opening of the document outlines the paper and AOs, following with the mark scheme. This will enable teachers to discuss how to obtain marks in the paper and the band boundaries. In addition, students could use this mark scheme as a self-assessment before attempting the paper, to set targets and correct their work as responding to the questions. It could also be used for peer-assessment.
The Unseen poem used is 'Long Distance II' by Tony Harrison which is used in the OCR spec, so should be accessible for all students. The prose is an extract from 'Of Mice and Men'.
