Time Management [Exam]

Hi there. When you last sat the exam, did you run out of time? If so, then try to follow these time management guide lines for the exam in June. 

FOUNDATION TIER – SECTION A

Q1……….5 MINUTES

Q2……….8 MINUTES

Q3……….10 MINUTES

Q4……….15 MINUTES

Q5……….22 MINUTES

 

HIGHER TIER – SECTION A

Q1…………10 MINUTES

Q2…………13 MINUTES

Q3…………15 MINUTES

Q4…………22 MINUTES 

 

SECTION B

Schools and colleges say the same thing as AQA do, that you need to spend 25 minutes on the first task and 35 on the final one, but I disagree, thinking it pertinent to spend 20 minutes on the first one in section B and 40 minutes on the task that carries the most marks, so you can concentrate on accuracy. It is, in the end, entirely up to you how you manage your time, but if you have scored 9 or above in the Controlled Assessments all year, to not plan your exam properly and run out of time [and therefore stand a chance of messing the exam up] would be a travesty. 

So, be warned! Time management is up to you in June!
