    The past papers will all be online!
    I've looked at some, but still have no idea whatsoever how to structure my answer (especially for the 8 marker)

    I have Germany 1918-38 and Britain 1929 - 51 I can help with those
    Britain 1929-51 looks like a fun topic! I'm OK for Germany actually; it's probably my best topic. But how do you structure the answers to your source paper?

    For unit 3 my teacher said that:

    Q1 (inference): [6 Marks]
    Source A suggests...

    Make 3 inferences from the source and back each one up with info directly from the source

    Q2 (Purpose) [8 Marks]
    The message of the representation is that...

    Support the message with evidence from the representation and also with some information from own knowledge

    The purpose of the representation is to...

    Support the purpose with evidence from the representation and information from own knowledge

    Q3 (Causation) [10 Marks]

    One reason why...

    Support with evidence from source and own knowledge

    This led to (outcome in question) because...

    (repeat this so that you have 3 paragraph each with a different cause)

    Q4 (reliability) [10 Marks]

    This is reliable/ unreliable because it suggests... (test content of source against own knowledge)

    Discuss NOP and how at least one of these affects its reliability

    Identify any limitations in the source

    Overall how reliable is the source

    (repeat for the other source)

    Q5. [16 marker]
    Intro (agree / disagree w/ the interpretation?)

    Argument for (use sources + own knowledge) and comment on its strength

    Argument against (use sources + own knowledge) and comment on its strength

    Conclusion (saying whether you agree / disagree with the interpretation depending on strength of evidence)

    MAKE SURE YOU TALK ABOUT AT LEAST 3 SOURCES TO GET 16/16

    I wasted a whole day learning how to plait my hair and doing my make up.

    Better that then plaiting hair in your exam.... No, of course I didn't do that in the geography paper....

    (Original post by Jitesh)
    I agree
    Plus they need questions to differentiate the top candidates to the weaker ones
    It wasn't that hard, just the wording wasn't that good. I can understand why everyone thought there was a lack of connection, but it did clearly say n is the amount of sweets...
    The wording was decent I thought when I actually saw the question. It seemed perfectly doable though I get that the feeling of 'omg, why did I revise so much [insert topic that always comes up in past papers]!!!!'

    Are the topics on the specs for A Levels going to change when we do the new A Levels in September? Or is the only thing that's changing going to be that we will have to do all our exams at the end of 2 years?

    There are new specifications for most subjects, I believe.

    For further maths aqa there are four practice paper sets and 4 past paper series (I think)
    You could also do core one past papers to brush up some skills. They don't include matrices and may include stuff like sequences and integration which we don't need to know but have useful quality questions. There's hundreds of them.

    I'd imagine there'll be sample papers online...
    But yes, you'll have to search through others for questions on the topics still included :giggle:

    You are very much the experimental year - enjoy the low grade boundaries

    Hey,

    Firstly - breathe.
    I'm sure you haven't done as badly as you think :yep:
    I messed up the first paper, and still managed to get a high A overall - I'm now doing Eng Lit at A2 :yep:

    Concentrate on the Poetry paper - if you can do amazingly in that then you will easily get an A.

    Stay positive :hugs:
