advice from the exam board
Advice from the exam board
  • Once again the focus is on portrayal within the representation of an issue.
  • It is essential that students understand that these Reps are not going to be used as evidence and therefore they should not be treated as sources to be evaluated for reliability and utility.
  • Instead you should think of them as the finished product that they are – you’re evaluating the quality of the overall portrayal within the Reps.
  • Remember it’s all about which is the best portrayal.

  • You will have one hour to write your answer.
  • You are allowed 2 sides of A4 for your notes and 1 side for your plan.

How to hit level 4

• Analyses the provided sources in order to show the way in which the past situation has been represented. Uses precisely selected detail from the provided sources to support the analysis.

• Makes a critical evaluation of the representation based on precisely selected information about the period in question and applying at least three criteria, for example the author’s purposes or objectivity, or the comprehensiveness and / or accuracy of the representation.

• Writing communicates ideas effectively, using a range of precisely selected historical terms and organising information clearly and coherently. The student spells, punctuates and uses the rules of grammar with considerable accuracy, although some spelling errors may still be found

Read pages 72 – 75 in the green textbook.

  • Make a note of all the things you need to include in your answer.
focus
Focus
  • When considering the ‘best’ representation, it’s important that you consider the representations focus.
  • You may want to discuss its focus briefly in your answer.
  • Consider this: is an in-depth piece on a narrow aspect of the issue ‘better’ than a broad overview?
  • How does the focus change between overviews and depth studies?
common problems
Common problems
  • Many students treat this as source exercise and evaluate the Reps only for reliability.
  • Many answers have displayed limited, or no, knowledge of the period or issue being represented.
don t forget the criteria
Don’t forget the criteria
  • The exam board suggests, within the mark scheme, that your criteria should take into account:
  • accuracy
  • coverage/comprehensiveness – this is about looking at whether the representation is complete, which should be supported by your contextual knowledge
  • objectivity – for this think in terms of the portrayal – is it neutral/balanced? The answer is based on an analysis of the representation and not on reasoning about the author’s likely bias or purpose.
  • purpose or focus of the portrayal (this will affect the creation of the representation – but you are not looking at it in terms of reliability).

It’s also not enough to state that a representation is accurate – own knowledge is needed to show which aspects are accurate/inaccurate.

CA Part B (ii)

Your answer needs to include:

  • An Introduction (see page 75 for ideas)
  • Criteria 1 – accuracy of the impression
    • Analysis of representations – least to most accurate
    • Judgement
  • Criteria 2 – comprehensiveness of the impression
    • Analysis of representations – least to most comprehensive
    • Judgement
  • Criteria 3 – objectivity of the impression
    • Analysis of representations – least to most objective
    • Judgement
  • Final overall judgement/conclusion – which is the ‘best’ representation?
