Question one. - inferences from a source - 6 marks

  • Go beyond the obvious clues and explain what you can learn, but still back up with reference to the source
  • Stick to the focus of the question (don't waste time saying the source is reliable etc. - you won't get any marks for it here!) 
  • Try to stick to one paragraph only
  • Practice by highlighting words or phrases which suggest inferences as you read a source ( if its a visual source, draw lines out from the details which you can use)
  • Try writing the inference and then support it with a word or phrase from the source.
  • Remember you need to make two supported inferences to achieve full marks!

Question two - portrayal (source analysis) - 8 marks

  • Go beyond the obvious clues and explain how the artist/writer is aiming to create a certain impression - by what they put in and by how they describe it - certain words, colours or expressions.
  • Revise the two types of this question

Question 3 - cross-referencing sources - 10 marks

  • Compare what is being said in the sources and reach a judgement as to how far they are saying the same thing (similarities) 
  • Show support on how far they agree with each…
