Hi Jill, thank you for investigating as well. Yes, there are two extracts from 'Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha' in the AQA booklet. You can click on the URL to go to the booklet, and you are looking for the second of the two extracts from the text to use with this resource.

The correct extract which matches the practice questions is in the AQA Reading Resource (second Roddy Doyle extract).

Same problem. Tried to use the Paddy Haha work and the practice questions are for a different section of the text. I'd still like to use this work so can you let me know when it will be corrected?

The q4 does not match up to the text; it is not about bikes
