For AQA A Level Paper 1: Listening, Reading and Writing

This really is one of the best resources I have ever seen for A Level and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. I like that the resource is very methodical and that it breaks down the summary task into bite-sized tasks, which I feel really equips students with the skills to do well in the exam.

I would be very happy to use this invaluable resource in my teaching. The content is high-quality, it is well structured and focuses on a new type of task appearing in the AS/A Level Year 1 exam I Simó-Arroyo, Teacher, Examiner and Ind. Reviewer
