2018 Edexcel GCSE History Unofficial mark schemeWatch
What did you guys say for the "How useful are sources A and B" question?
I wrote about the provenance, content and context behind each each of the sources- drawing out points of usefulness from each e.g source a was a photograph, and this shows a clear and accurate representation of treatment of battle injuries by medical staff on the Western Front or the fact that Source b was written by a nurse in a military hospital .
Then I wrote about the drawbacks of each- e.g source a is a photograph, it highlights a snapshot or specific moment but does not represent an overall view of treatment- and then concluded by stating how both sources together still are very useful in providing a panoramic view into the enquiry question.
I referred to context where appropriate e.g source b was about the Battle of the Somme ( relevant information about the battle ).
