JC A-Level H1 GP AQ: Examination Tips


This Application Question example for A-Level General Paper focuses on Social issues, specifically Marriages.

In our GP tuition lessons, this was assigned as one timed-practice assignment in class. One script for the H1 GP AP is graded the elusive “A”, another a “B” and yet another “C”. Read through the 3 answers and decide which one is which. Do not in advance that all the answer for the AQ example are written by JC students themselves, and all grammar errors have not been corrected.

(Feel free to ask our tutors for General Paper when you see them in class or the GP intensive revision tutorials.)
