Paper Two

Paper Two lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes. It is a skills-based paper with two questions worth 10 marks each and one worth eight marks for a total of 28 marks. Each question is based on sources and your answer must be based on the sources.

There are three types of question but your answers to each should have one thing in common – and that is that you must refer to all the sources at least once by the time you have finished your answer.

The three types of question are:

  • To what extent is it accurate...? questions (10 marks)
  • What conclusions can be drawn...? questions (10 marks)
  • To what extent are the sources reliable...? questions (eight marks)
