Event description
An overview of the AQA GCSE English Language exams (Papers 1 & 2)

About this Event

This is a Masterclass on how to get the BEST grade you can in the GCSE English Language exam. This is specifically for the AQA exam board; if you are with any other exam board, please check you have booked onto the correct class.

This Masterclass will teach you:

  • The difference between the two papers
  • How to revise for each paper
  • What skills to apply to each question
  • How much time to spend on each question
  • How examiners mark the exam
  • What the examiner is looking for in a top-grade answer
  • Common mistakes students make in the exam

During the session you will also be able to ask any questions you have about the exams and how they’re marked . The session is completely FREE and will be run by renowned London-based super-tutor Paul Woodward. Paul has worked directly with official examiners to write exam papers, review mark schemes and write model answers, so he knows exactly what examiners are looking for a top-grade answer.

"There's no charge for the session because so many young people are missing out on a good education at the moment and many students sitting their exams next year are anxious about how disadvantaged they’ll be academically. I’m determined to help address and remedy that."

The session will take place over Zoom and will last approx. 60mins . You will be sent the Zoom invite link before the class.

"The Masterclass was amazing! Thank you."

"I learnt so many clear methods to remember."

"I think I learnt more in an hour than I did all term at school."

"The exercises were very helpful and the tutor critiqued our writing really well."

The Masterclass will be hosted by Paul Woodward, a renowned London-based super-tutor and founder of PassMyEnglish. Paul has over 12 years tutoring experience, has edited over 50 revision books on the GCSE and A Level syllabus, was Director or the well-known education publishing company Connell Guides for 6 years, and now creates online learning content and writes practice exam papers. Paul is offering a number of free online classes during the lockdown. Paul also offers private 1:1 online tuition.

English Language

The English course at Reach follows the AQA exam board and is designed to inspire and motivate students, providing appropriate stretch and challenge whilst ensuring that the assessment and texts are, as far as possible, accessible to all students.

It enables students to develop the skills they need to read, understand and analyse a wide range of different texts and write clearly.

The first exam paper is centred about descriptive writing and reading and assesses student’s ability to read and write creatively. The second paper assesses student’s ability to recognise and comment on a writer’s views and perspectives, plus they will write their own non-fiction based piece.
