Any tips on how to get timing right in the skills paper?

I'm doing the source paper of the war and transformation of the british society in just over a week. Our class hasn't really practised the questions, but it's not the skills i struggle with, it's the timing!

Any tips on how to adress the paper? perhaps annotate the source paper first, then answer the questions?


thank youuu!

 I think I'm doing the same paper as you! OK, as there is I hr 15 mins you need to split the time up accodingly for the 5 questions. Q1 should take 10 mins, Q2,3 &4 should take 12 mins and finally Q5 should take 20 mins as it is the longest! And then check over your answers in the remaining time.

Hope this helps you!

I this the source paper you're talking about? If so, try and use the number of marks as a guide for each question, fore example a 5 mark question usually only needs about 5 minutes, a 8 mark question spend about 15 minutes on it and a 10 mark question 15-20 minutes is needed. I think you get 1hr and 30mins for the source paper.
