      For paper 1, an hour on Personal Writing and 30 minutes on Functional Writing, Media Studies and Reading

      For paper 2, about 20-30 minutes on each question (unseen drama, poetry, fiction, studies drama, poetry, fiction). Remember, you need to show more knowledge on your studied questions than your unseen questions but make sure to read the unseen play/poem/story carefully
