    Hi

    The exam is next Wednesday, who else is doing it?
    I've got a week to revise for this one so not too much stress, except there is a lot to learn!

    I'm doing this exam-1939-75 I have a lot of skill with the 16 mark questions, I've had 13,14,14,15 marks in my mocks when marked so I'm hoping I'll be consistent in the exam. As for the other questions, I really need to sharpen up as in Paper 1 I think I dropped 5-7 marks on the first page alone😔

    my teacher told us that this year ocr have changed things and we can get a mix of topics!! so scary but it could be sources about the impacts of liberal reforms on women etc

    how would you answer the big 16 marker at the end? our teachers never explained to us about it just it had more depth to it whatever that means?

    my teacher told us to leave at least 15 mins for the last question and to organise it into 3 paragraphs, one paragraph agreeing with the statement, one opposing it and a conclusion one too

    You look at all the sources of the paper and label which ones are for and against the statement. Then you state the sources for the statement and explain at least two of them and evaluate them. So you could question their reliability if they're trustworthy, etc. Then you would do the same for the sources against the statement. Then you would do a conclusion and state overall whether the sources of the paper agree with the statement.

    That's how I was taught it anyway. I hope that was useful!
