    Hi, I was wondering If anyone is taking the source exam for ocr history B on Tuesday. (14 may 2013) if so, I'm having trouble with structuring my answer and how to evaluate the sources. Any advise will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi, I'm taking the exam too!
    What unit are you doing? Im doing Italian unification...

    I'd recommend trying to compare the sources throughout in the first question and looking at the provenance closely, who is the author? date? where? why?
    As for the 2nd question with all the sources, group on whether they agree or disagree and try to compare throughout, looking at the dates, authors, motives etc.

    Hope it helps?

    Oh God haha everyone is saying this. I think this is the only time people are allowed to say "Let's hope it's the Nazis tomorrow". We are due a pre-war paper but you can never be certain until you are in the exam

    How well do you think you did in the 30 marker? My teacher says if you did well in the first part then it is a bit of a safety cushion for the second part but that depends on how you performed for the rest of the 70 marker...

    So thankful it was Nazi Germany. Part A was worded awfully: "methods" of what? How he brushes his teeth?

    The Sources weren't much better.

    I did the Italian Unification unit on Tuesday!
    Thought it was a good question on the role of Mazzini, however wasn't much own knowledge to support the sources due to his lack of any physical involvement throughout unification.
    However, the sources could not have been better, extremely clear and lots to say.
    Anyone else do this unit?

    Yeah, I did this unit too! I agree, good sources. The main bits of own knowledge I tried to add where examples of people he had inspired, e.g the bandeira brothers, garibaldi to take the south but as you said there wasn't too much you could add through own knowledge!
