    Hi not sure if this is e right place to post this as I'm new but hopefully it is. I have a history sources mock paper tomorrow and I am really panicking about what to do. Our topic is key topic. 4 (the general strike, equality for woman and industrial unrest). I don't understand the structure and really want to get high marks. Any advice as to how I could do this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated especially since my exam is tomorrow morning. Thanks xx

    If it is for the OCR exam board:
    For the shorter questions that ask the messages, give the Theme, Evidence (context) and Analysis (What effect this has).

    For the long sixteen mark question at the end it is essential that you answer it correctly otherwise the top grade you can get is Level 2 which is about 4-5 out of a possible 16 marks. In this question you give a theme, and give a lot of context- you only briefly reference the source, and the bulk of the mars will come from the context you give! This was an addition to the mark scheme 2 years ago and many people still answer it incorrectly.
    Keep in mind this is for OCR!

    Are you doing the GCSE Paper tomorrow?
    I never understand what they mean by context? And will it be on votes for women?
