    Also just wondering what paragraph structure for the a) and b) parts of the exam has your teacher advised you to write in?? my history teacher is a bit cryptic when it comes to telling how to write an answer!!

    for both parts i try to merge the provenance of the Sources into the main paragraphs. in the examiner report it recommends to do this. So within a paragraph you have a statement, quote from one or two sources, explanation of the quotes, back up with own knowledge and provenance.

    For part b) make sure you have a clear line of argument throughout the essay, and deal with the interpretation given in the question first.

    Part a) 2 similarities + 2 differences + conclusion

    part b) explain sources that support given interpretation + 2 more interpretations, a paragraph each + conclusion.

    There are so many different ways to structure the answer I would stick to the way you were told by your teacher. I find that I don't have time to write about any more similarities or differences.

    I'm doing this exam too I'm resitting it so do not ask me for advice. My teacher is highly cryptic and I had to try to teach it all to myself. Last year my teacher understated the need for own knowledge, you actually need loads of own knowledge! I recommend learning the full dates of the events (day and month too) so that you can determine how accurate or reliable a source is.

    It's fine, just try to stay calm, freaking out will cause you to write an incomprehensible answer. Write out plans for your essay structure first so that you don't go off waffling and you should be alright as long as you follow them. Just remember that own knowledge is just as important as provenance. Keep an eye on timing too, part b) is much more important because it's worth more. The key to part a) is definitely quality rather than quantity.
