English Language Paper 2

1 hour exam based on the writing of two transactional pieces

(non-fiction) texts

Revision must include, the daily reading of a wide range of non-fiction texts in order to help you write in an appropriate: tone, style and format. 

  • Newspapers
  • Magazine Articles
  • Topical/ Contemporary Papers- politics, sport, culture, economics...
  • Webpages
  • Leaflets
  • Brochures
  • Travel writing- what about Bill Bryson?


So, consider the P (purpose) A (audience) F (format) of your writing.

You will be expected to write an article and letter, so familarise yourself with these types of writing. One piece will require a formal style (think about vocabulary choices) and the other will be informal (e.g. a lively article).

Also, you are assessed on your ability to write with technical accuracy:

  • Sentence structures
  • Punctuation
  • Spelling
  • Content
  • Organisation
