A mock paper based on AQA English Language Paper 1 using Brave New World as the fiction extract.
This pack contains:
• Insert of Brave New World extract
• Question paper containing Section A (extract questions 1-4) and Section B (creative writing question 5)
The question paper has an exam style topsheet, and space for students to write after each question as they would in the actual exam.
Great for revision and class use, and worked well with a group of my students to help them practise the skills for the exam and know what the layout would be like in terms of what they would be asked to do.
This works with AQA's specimen markscheme for their sample paper, for easy assessment.
