Hi Cerys,
Thank you for your comments. I've had a look at the sample papers available to compare, and question 3 in the June 2017 exam was a language question on the modern text. Presumably it can be on either text. Good luck to you and your students!

Question 3 refers to Source B, the Guardian article. However in all the other sample papers I've seen, this question refers to the pre-20th century text. Is this a mistake in the format of this paper or does AQA sometimes ask for the language in the modern text to be analysed?

Hi! This is fantastic.
However, would you be able to provide a mark scheme?

Hi Victoria, we'd love to publish the article from 'The Guardian', but unfortunately it's protected by copyright. You'll find the second text by using the hyperlink. Hope you find it useful!
