This is a mock paper that I have created for my Y11s as they have already completed the one (grrrrr) sample assessment available on the AQA website. It mirrors the sample paper throughout, but with different questions (obviously). 3 of the 4 items included in the paper are from the AQA text book so I cannot include the images of them for copyright reasons. I have, however, told you where they need to be inserted and where exactly to find them.
Now includes model answers for each question.
