From 2015, candidates sitting Component 1 (Poetry and Prose) will have no restrictions on the questions which they answer. Thus they could answer two extract questions, or two discursive questions. Furthermore, any named poems which appear in a question will be printed on the paper.
However, should the Centre also be entering candidates for Component 2 (Drama), they should be aware that the requirement to answer one extract question (“*”) and one discursive question (“†”) still exists on this paper.
On Component 3 (optional Open Book Drama) again candidates have a free choice of question, and there are no restrictions based on the type of question which they might have chosen to answer on other papers.
