    Hi everyone,
    I have been revising content a lot this holiday, and I am aiming for an A or A* in the final exam, but it seems that I have forgotten the structure for some parts of the paper
    For the first paper (AQA) there is a 6 mark source question however it isn't heavily reliant on the source, 5 marks is for knowledge, but I can't remember the structure! I remember something about putting two points, but that's all.
    Also, if someone could possibly help me with the structure of all of paper 2, that would be great, I haven't even seen a paper 2 yet! I know the content - just not how to get it down.

    what subject?

    If you're doing History B, my teacher uses the UMPA acronym which stands for:

    Useful (bits that are good about the source)
    Missing (bits not useful/not included (eg. a source on the League of Nations not mentioning Woodrow Wilson))
    Provenance (who published the source/where the source was published/when the source was published)
    Assess (refer directly back to the question and give judgement about how useful the source is)

    Its similar to the course work and the ten marker in section B
