How many references are expected in Question 1?

We do not expect a specific number of references to be given for Question 1. References must be accurate and relevant to support a candidate’s answer effectively. Other criteria in the band descriptors must also be taken into account; for example, the mark scheme descriptor for the top band requires ‘much well-selected reference to the text’ but also a ‘clear critical understanding’ and evidence of responding ‘sensitively and in detail’. Critical reference alone will not secure a top mark.
