    i did ocr at gcse
    and we had a source booklet
    we were given time to plan
    and bring a limited amount of our own research

    get this right and it will put you at a good position
    try and make it personal from your views and if you are running out of ideas then look for examples
    i got 50/50 because i worked for it and went in the exam with confidence
    best of luck

    I'm doing my CA right now!
    You're allowed your research in front of you, but no planned drafts or structures etc.
    And there is no time limit
    If you complete accurate and detailed source analysis AND evaluation, AND write a concise yet detailed judgement, it will not be hard to get an A*

    we had a limited time????
    We were given 2 and a half hours of controlled time in class but if people still haven't finished, then they can sit extra controlled time after school.
    AQA have said there is no time limit to the CA.
