7701/2 AQA AS English Language - easy to use mark schemes for AS questions Paper 1 and 2

7701/2 AQA AS English Language - easy to use mark schemes for AS questions Paper 1 and 2

These resources use a slightly simplified pupil friendly version of the mark schemes as part of a tick the box cover sheet to use when marking students' work. The cover sheets have two main uses as they help students become familiar with which AOs are relevant to each different question and they definitely help teachers mark work significantly quicker. Just tick/highlight whereabouts students are up to or not for each AO. The general targets can be pre-populated with common errors for speed too.
