AQA A2 Exam Update

We believe that there is an intention to provide more parted questions on the A2 exam papers than previously. Indeed this has been shown on some of the sample papers. The result is some very undecipherable marks. For example sometimes 10 marks breaks down to 3 AO1 marks and 7 AO2 marks or sometimes 5 AO1 marks and 5 AO2 marks.
As a result we have been advised that, in certain questions the exam will show the breakdown of marks, so that an ‘outline and evaluate’ question might have (5 marks + 9 marks) instead of just (14 marks) after it to show the proportions of marks for description and evaluation.
