    Do you discuss the provenance of each source? Because that gets you the marks
    Of course she said my cross referencing etc was excellent, but my own knowledge was limited!

    same.

    I've got no idea but i'm hopin its something on Wolsey
    There usually is a question on Wolsey and on Cromwell in part B. It might also be divided into early and late periods of the course.

    Okay I really need some advice for the Section A source question. Do you have to use CONTEXTUAL knowledge that relates to the sources in your answer?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Contextual knowledge yes, but not too much! You will need to examine the provenance of the sources more and develop them- linking it to the weight of evidence it provides etc.

    I start with a point perhaps derived from my own knowledge and support it using quotes from sources that seem to corroborate. I've not done many so I'm a bit worried! How about you?

    I really hope a question on the treatment of the British Tommy in the Boer War comes up!

    Oh that sounds good! And oh maybe it won't come up if it isn't that obvious! You got any predictions for the Boer?

    maybe press censorship or concentration camps.btw those are partially not predictions just areas I am desperate to come up .

    I always also seem to come up short in terms of the length of my essay,I feel I should be writing more.
    During the mock we did my teacher actually went 'is that it' when I handed her my answers

    Henry8th people this is the structure I am using for my main body paragraphs:
    Point (agreeing with the question)
    Example (sources that both support, possibly a third source if it does, and suggest something that supports the questions statement),
    Explain (this is combined with the example which pretty much just explains the point it makes,
    Evaluation (questioning the author, the time it was written and maybe undermine sources with other sources),
    Explain (this is just the area where I reach my judgement

    That is for part a for part b I throw in own knowledge after the example to support it further, also during the example I cross-reference the sources. Do you reckon this will be good enough for a high grade? Also for part a I plan on discriminating between the sources and partly the same for part b, but it depends more on the source writers and whether there is some bias.
