This pack is to be used in conjunction with the ENGA1 paper set in June 2012, currently available on e-aqa under ‘secure key materials’. It will support exam preparation and practice in a structured and scaffolded way.

The philosophy behind this pack is simply to support students to help them to produce decent answers and to develop skills in approaching exam questions while doing so. The exemplar model answers and range of extracts for improvement will give students a focus to work on their skills.

  • ENGA1 AO focus for Mode questions handout
