Paper 2 Exam Review

In this asynchronous Paper 2 Exam Revision Course, you will read two short stories.  The first is A Family Supper by Kazuo Ishiguro.  The second is titled Stones by Timothy Findley.  These stories are rich in both themes and authorial choices, and they make great texts to demonstrate the entire Paper 2 process from start to finish.

We believe in the “we go, you go” method of Paper 2 revision.  This means we’ll model important steps with our short stories, and then ask you to go through the same steps with your selected Paper 2 texts.  After the 10 lessons, you will have written a complete sample Paper 2 essay for your texts under our guidance. We are confident that completing this process will have you well-prepared for exam day.

Our Paper 2 Exam Revision Course includes:

  • 10 complete asynchronous lessons with downloadable documents
  • More than 2 hours of new instructional video from Dave and Andrew not released on YouTube
  • 5 formative checks to ensure understanding of key concepts
  • 2 downloadable short stories for annotation
