Starting with question 1, that'll be 2 marks where you will have to use 2 simple points making sure you link back to the question and not off topic. Question 2 will have 4 marks where you will have to talk about the importance of a source that the question is asking you. Question 3 will have 6 marks where you talk about 2 factors of a source in which you need to link back to the question using your point, evidence and explanation of what the source is showing you or telling you. Question 4 has upto 8 marks and it will ask you to give out 3 factors using your own knowledge on what you know about the question it's asking you. Question 5 will have upto 15 marks. The first lost of 5 will be a grade C at the end of the exam if you talk about the importance of something using your own knowledge. Then, it will go to 10 marks which will give you a B if you talk about something you know using your own knowledge and to describe what your talking about. To get 15 marks, it will get you an A / A* grade where you focus to the detail. To get 13 marks on the last question, you need to go into as much detail as possible using your own knowledge.
