Past papers and mark schemes

These past papers are for the previous specifications, 4710/9710, and may be useful for revision for the strengthened specification 9715. Please bear in mind the changes to the specification, particularly the extra marks for spelling punctuation and grammar.

Revise for exams with past papers and use the mark schemes to assess performance.

Teachers can get past papers earlier, starting 10 days after the exam, from Secure Key Materials within e-AQA: our secure extranet.
