I have written a detailed guide to how to answer each style of question, both Question a and Question b. Each has its own criteria and you should bear this in mind when answering them! It is vital that you are aware of the different Assessment Objectives. Each question assesses different things and therefore you must approach the sources differently.

General advice for the exam...
1. Plan your answers before you start writing. Take 10 minutes to carefully read and review each of the sources and produce a plan. this will ensure you dont rush into your answer.
2. The number of marks is proportional to the time you have (20 marks = 20 minutes)
3. Use the sources as the basis of your answer. This will help keep you focussed. Remember to give examples from the sources to support your argument.
4. Develop inferences (what does the source suggest to you?) and support these with evidence.
