We did a Edexcel sample paper at school for the new paper.

Question 1 is 8 marks (inference)
Question 2 is 6 marks (choose out of the two boxes and describe them)
Question 3 is 8 marks (another source question)
Question 4 is 12 marks
Question 5 is 16 marks (+3 marks for SPaG)

There is no question 5/6a anymore because they've removed it. However all the marks still add up to 53 which is exactly the same for every history B paper!
I've got the medicine exam on Monday too by the way, good luck!!

Yeah that's the structure :3 It's kinda annoying and confusing that they just changed the style of the questions, our teacher only told us two weeks ago and I have the medicine paper on Monday :O How are you feeling about it?

What the other guy said is the structure of the questions, but it might be worth noting that question 3 is a sources question where they ask how useful the source is, for a historian studying a certain topic. To answer you show how it is useful using the content AND nature of it, then say how it isn't useful using the content AND the nature of it. Then just add a short summary in which you reach a judgement. Just thought i'd tell you, in case you didn't know how to answer it on monday Good luck

I think it will be fine, if i don't think about the end result then I find it much easier to stay positive, because it feels like the exam is more of a way to show off what you can do, than a 'IF YOU DO NOT GET 90%+ YOU WILL END UP HOMELESS BECAUSE YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO GET A JOB' kind of situation :P
