Please will you give advice as to how to go about answering the following questions, what sort of things are noteworthy in the sources shown and perhaps write up a top mark answer and a mediocre answer.

Take at least five minutes to study the sources, and then answer the three questions which
follow.
When Edward VI came to the throne in 1547 he was a minor. The Duke of Somerset, Edward Seymour, became Lord Protector and ruled on his behalf, despite Henry VIII’s will stating that a Regency Council should rule until Edward VI came of age. In 1549 Kett’s rebellion broke out, the handling of which contributed to Somerset’s fall from power.
Source A
One of his closest advisers warns Somerset about the consequences of his policies towards the poor.
I told your Grace the truth, and was not believed. Well, now your Grace sees it, what says your Grace? The King’s subjects out of all discipline, out of obedience, caring for neither Protector nor King, and much less for any inferior officer. And what is the cause? Your own leniency, your softness, your intention to be good to the poor.
I know your good meaning and honest nature. But, I say, Sir, it is a great pity that your gentleness should be the cause of so great an evil as is now brought about in England by those rebels.
Sir William Paget, Letter to Somerset, 7 July 1549
Source B
Protector Somerset writes to a close advisor expressing his view of the rebels.
Some rebels wish to pull down enclosures and parks; some want to recover their common land; others pretend religion is their motive. A number would want to rule for a time, and do as gentlemen have done, and indeed all have a great hatred of gentlemen and regard them as their enemies. The ruffians among them, and the soldiers, who are the leaders, look for loot. So the rebellions are nothing other than a plague and a fury among the vilest and worst sort of men.
Protector Somerset, letter to Philip Hoby, 24 August 1549

When you do source questions, then you need to think:

Who is saying it?
What motivation?
When?
Context.
What are they saying?
How credible is it?
What conclusions can you draw from it?

Go through the source and nearly every sentence is telling us something along those lines.

If you consider all the above, then it helps you understand the statement and then you need to evaluate it to decide what conclusions you can draw from it. Its also important to know what conclusions you cannot draw from it.

Question A you need t be careful and look at what conclusions you cna draw and what you cannot. Its asking you how useful it is. Some things are more useful than others.

Question B is asking you to assess what the evidence really says as a whole. Is it about enclosure or are there clues it might not be as important?

Question C is a comparison. its asking why you might think one source gives you a better insight into whats happening than the other.

Who, when what why?

I dont think its realistic for me to write the answers for you. get a history revision book or have a look on youtube r even ask your teacher.

It's not for me lol, I'm tutoring a young relative of mine and those questions in my previous post are from an independent school Entrance Exam (13+). My specialisms are maths and science. Thats why I asked for sample answers or at least bullet points of what I would give marks for.


But anyhow thanks for replying!


** The school has not published a mark scheme.

Oh I see. Ofc there are mark schemes. maybe not for that one, but its just common sense. You will be able to find other examples if you google.
Maybe you could get them a tutor who could spend time with them?
Ive given you enough guidance to get a good answer. If you talk them through it then you can assemble the answer together.

**Ofc there are mark schemes.** I agree; as I say again - the school has not published a mark scheme.

"Maybe you could get them a tutor who could spend time with them?" -- can't afford it; he's only struggling with Humanities. His strong points are STEM.

"If you talk them through it then you can assemble the answer together."
thats the point of starting this thread. I don't know how he should write it up. other than simple sentences with PQEE (point, quote, Evidence, Explanation.)

thanks again
