Any help on the OCR Unit 3 interpretations and unit 1 sources. Like in terms of structure and how I should be approaching the questions. With the unit 3 interpretations I am stuck at 13/30 and keep going over time and with the sources I am at 19/30, run over time sometimes and not sure what I am doing wrong. (I am resitting so I don't have a teacher to ask)

Have you looked at past paper mark schemes and examiners reports?

Bit exhausted at the moment but there are good answers on how to deal with source questions on TSR and youtube.

Timing is just organisation, discipline and practice. You need to work to a formula i.e 1h then 10 mins reading and then 50 mins / marks available. 13 is way too low and you should be able to get 20 just by knowing what you should be doing.

See if any of th4ese are on point.

Thank you the resources you linked are really helpful. Also, do you know how best to understand and comprehend mark schemes? They just seem so distant to me and I struggle to understand them.
