I agree with what Lucy has said here. I think as well it's definitely a good move to tackle the largest questions first in the exam. Because they're work more marks, you want to ensure that your energies and time resources are focused on the parts of the exam that will yield the highest marks.

Again, use the time management techniques that Lucy has mentioned to ensure you have sufficient time to answer the others.

I am not an AQA expert but from having a look at their papers, reading the specification and knowing other exams similar to this you should be dividing your time around about 20 minutes for the first question and 55 minutes on the second. Question 1 they really want you to find links between the reasons so make sure you spend at least 5 minutes planning this to ensure you can show how they are related.  Question 2 is about debating the two sides of the arguments and it is really important to try and get balance so again around 10 minutes planning.  You will be amazed at what you can write in a short time if you plan properly.

Hope this helps a bit
