General issues
General issues

  • Standard of work generally very good

  • Majority of work hand-written

  • Most work done in class over several sessions

  • Problems with non-attendees / senior management

  • Still much work was over-long

  • Not all centres used the marking checklist


Part a
Part (a)

  • Main problem was with a set structure of introduction, isolated evaluation and conclusion

  • Suggested that candidates should be encouraged to integrate their source evaluation into the narrative of the historical events.

  • Quality of source evaluation varied with candidates often rewarded for irrelevant and incorrect comments.


Part b
Part (b)

  • On the whole, this was done well

  • Candidates were showing that they understand what interpretations are and how different views are arrived at.

  • Some answers still need a stronger judgement


Marking and annotation
Marking and annotation

  • Around 20% of centres had their raw marks adjusted in 2011. This was higher than normal as the moderating panel felt the need to get things right at the first go.

  • Recommended that the checklist is used in centres

  • Annotation within the body of the work does aid the moderation process


Titles questions
Titles / questions

  • A new pair of exercises must be set for 2012

  • If the same exercises are submitted in consecutive years, the work will be returned to the centre and no marks awarded for the unit.

  • Forms are available for the next two year cycle, 2013-2014. Electronic versions should be sent to Greg Lewis for approval over the next six months. They are available on the website.
