    OCR History exam - The People's Crusade!!

    I always like to begin my paragraphs by grouping the sources e.g. Sources D and E both disagree with the interpretation that the people's crusade was well- organised.

    But I realized as they said pens-down that I then went and wrote about a bunch of other sources!! Everything I said about the sources was correct, I just labelled the sources wrongly in in the opening sentence. Even the conclusion was (thank god) the correct way around.

    But will this mislabeling of sources drop me loads of marks??!

    If it was only the first sentence that was incorrectly labelled, and it is clear which sources you were talking about in the rest of the paragraph, I doubt you will drop "loads of marks" -- probably a couple, but it's just an honest mistake.

    I don't suppose you might know if in general they drop marks for mislabeling sources, or if it simply depends upon the severity of the mistake?
